Recently, USA Network premiered a new original show, "Fairly Legal," that features a mediator as the main character. The show has been a hot topic of conversation in the Alternative Dispute Resolution world, garnering both praise for highlighting the field and criticism for being too flashy.
We tend to take the "any press is good press" approach to it, and believe that it is a good way to shed some light on the powerful work we do here every day.
Have you watched it? We'd love to know what you think, and are happy to answer any questions you may have about mediation and alternative dispute resolution. We'll post answers to your questions in our next issue, along with feedback from our staff and volunteer mediators.
You can also take the show's quiz (click on the image below) and let us know what result you get. We'd really like to hear from our volunteer mediators on this one.
