This is the eighth article in this series on mediation advocacy. The seventh article, published July 25, discussed the strategic uses of pre-mediation submissions. The article continued a scenario in which the parties, Widgetronics and DesignMetrics, entered into a contract containing a dispute resolution clause and became embroiled in a dispute over Widgetronics' alleged wrongful termination of the contract.

This article provides tips on effective advocacy for that initial session.
