Abstract

The vast majority of people reading this article will have participated in most, if not all, of the mediations they have attended as counsel for defendants. Most readers will not have spent enough time in that other room to be able to understand the entirely different set of pressures that exist for plaintiffs and their counsel. We should care about what is going on in that other room because it will help us do our job and meet what should be the goal of every mediation: a fair settlement.

Keywords: mediation, plaintiffs, settlement
