What Goes On At A Mediation Session

Within a mediation session, two types of meetings can occur. First, the joint session. This is when everyone is present; parties, their representatives and lawyers meet with the mediator and outline the basic issues, interests and positions of each side. The second type of meeting is called caucus. A caucus is a private and confidential meeting between the mediator and one of parties and their attorney(s). In mediations, both types of meetings occur as it helps overcome positional obstacles and helps maintains a forward progress toward a mutually agreeable resolution.
