About the Seminar

The seminar is led by Northwestern University Law School's Lynn Cohn, Duke University Law School's René Stemple Treh, and NAR Educator of the Year, REALTOR® Bruce Aydt.

The seminar is an intensive, two-and-a-half day learning experience designed to enhance and refine existing mediation skills. The seminar features a full day of three-person mediation simulations guided by individual coaches, and includes instruction and comprehensive support materials enabling participants to serve as mediators and ombuds for the sate and local associations and to share the techniques, skills, and expertise they gain with other REALTORS® and association executives.

These training efforts coupled with the willingness of the REALTORS® and association executives who attend—and who form the Association's cadre of mediators and trainers—enables the REALTOR® organization to effectively embrace and provide mediation and ombuds services as valuable dispute resolution tools.
