Paper on Dueling Experts in Mediation

This paper written for an Australian alternative dispute resolution association discusses methods for a mediator to deconstruct polar opposite expert opinions.

Some of the methods involve a lot of cost such as bringing the experts together to discuss their opinions. In workers compensation we might apply this technique by discussing in the mediation what the experts might say if we brought them together.

This material would be useful for counsel to prepare their clients for mediation.
