Ethical Issues in Mediation: Practice Pointers for Counsel and Mediators

Rule 1.1: Competent representation
Rule 1.12: Conflicts involving mediators
Rule 2.1: Informing clients about mediation
Rule 2.4: The role of the mediator
Rule 4.1: Duty of truthfulness
Rule 8.3: Reports of disciplinary violations
Ethics opinions discussed include:
