How does it work?

The Agile Lawyer | Mediator Interview Series is about interviewing professionals from all walks of law – some who are litigators, some are mediators, some who are coaches, and some who are not even lawyers. 

We share insights and perspectives from people who've been there and done that, and what can we learn from some of the greats.

We will kick-off the program with the legendary Forrest (Woody) Mosten and inspirational, cutting edge Angela Reddock.  

The series continues with a new guest speaker each month. We continue to add resources as the world of dispute resolution evolves so we ensure that you receive the best tools and solutions, directly from the top leaders in the field. 

The program is designed as a monthly subscription (every 30 days) to provide a unique and novel approach to mentorship. If you feel that you are not receiving the value that you expect, you can cancel anytime you want, no strings attached.
