NAR's 2021 Mediator/Mediation Training will take place September 8-10 at the Hyatt Centric Chicago Magnificent Mile Hotel in Chicago, IL.

Event full – Registration closed.


This intensive two-and-a-half day learning experience is designed to enhance and refine one’s existing mediation skills. The seminar features one full day of three-person mediation simulations, guided by individual mediation coaches. The training is led by Northwestern University Law School’s Lynn Cohn, Duke University Law School’s René Stemple Trehy, and NAR “Educator-of-the-Year,” REALTOR® Bruce Aydt. The training empowers attendees to share dispute resolution techniques, skills, and expertise with others. The instruction and comprehensive support materials also enable participants to serve as mediators and ombudsmen. 


Prior experience or training in mediation is helpful for attendees, but not required.
