Magistrate Judges provide an important judicial alternate dispute resolution function to the courts, conducting settlement conferences, not only in cases in which the parties have consented to the jurisdiction of a Magistrate Judge, but probably more frequently in cases referred for settlement.
Our distinguished panel of United States Magistrate Judges of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania will share their insights on presiding over settlement conferences involving labor and employment cases. They will provide "best practices" for practitioners to achieve a successful outcome. The judges will also address ethical issues that may arise during settlement conferences.
This course has also been approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio Commission on Continuing Legal Education for 1.00 total CLE hour instruction.
