Abstract

The author asserts that under current Minnesota law, the ethical professional responsibilities of mediators may depend, in part, on their professional identity outside of the mediation process. The article analyzes the conflicting responsibilities created by a panoply of Minnesota statutes, court rules, and lawyer and neutral ethical codes.

Keywords: mediation, ethics, self-determination, justice, neutrality
