1h 7m

Created on January 14, 2020




This program, taught by Deborah Renner, the Principal at Renner Law PLLC, focuses on the why, when, and how to mediate a class action settlement successfully. Unlike individual settlements, class action settlements require judicial approval. Mediating a settlement with a third party neutral often can provide the parties with a preview of the issues a court may consider in approving a settlement. In addition, approaching a court with a mediated settlement may provide the court with some preliminary assurance that a fair settlement was reached. This course will provide practical advice on preparing for a class action mediation and examine common issues in class settlements.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Discuss when - and why - it may be appropriate to mediate a class action
  2. Prepare for mediation
  3. Review the types of class settlements
  4. Determine attorneys' fees
  5. Identify when a cy pres award makes sense for your client
