Making A Case for Post-Trial Mediation

Connecticut Law Tribune

February 25, 2019

Much has been written about pretrial mediation. The ability to achieve certainty and resolve a case without having to go through a lengthy and uncertain trial (whether to the court or, with expensive voir dire, to a jury) is without a doubt a very attractive way to save time and money.

This article identifies the opportunity and articulates the wisdom of post-trial mediation.
