Online Litigation Decision Tree creator - The Arboretum

Mediators who work in the “shadow of the law” sometimes use litigation risk analysis tools as a way to talk with parties about the strengths and weaknesses of their cases without appearing to take sides. Atlanta-based attorney and mediator Dan Klein has made this process easier by providing a free online tool called The Arboretum for creating decision trees. As he explains…
“A decision tree shows the various possible outcomes in a lawsuit and helps the parties evaluate the costs, risks and benefits of each outcome. In a typical lawsuit—where a plaintiff simply seeks to recover some amount of money from a defendant—a decision tree lists the most likely ways the case can come out and produces a weighted average of the results.”

The Bay Area Nonviolent Communication group has been producing a monthly community television program on addressing conflicts in our lives using nonviolent communication techniques. The program Conflict Hotline: Where What You Say Next Can Change Your World features roleplays of conflicts provided by callers, replaying them using NVC techniques.

To find out more about when the programs are happening live so that you can call in or watch the live video stream, visit this link. Great collection of conflict examples that could be used as teaching clips.
