offers professional interdisciplinary training for Collaborative Professionals and their staff.


The Collaborative Law Process

Collaborative Law - the New Paradigm

Collaborative Law is a process that seeks to assist the parties in resolving their cases through interest-based negotiation rather than position-based negotiation without the trauma or expense of “going to court.” The process involves attorneys, mental health professionals and financial professionals working with the clients in face-to-face meetings.  These meetings explore the parties’ interests, goals and options with a civilized approach designed to reach a “win-win” resolution for the parties. 
The Collaborative Law process is an excellent tool for resolving divorce and family law cases, as well as civil cases including guardianship and probate.  New Paradigm Collaborative Law Training events are designed for those new to the collaborative process as well as experienced collaborative professionals. 



Training for Legal Assistants and Paralegals

Staff Training has become very much in demand in our training requests as collaborative professionals have realized how critical it is for the staff to be trained in marketing the collaborative process from the client's very first contact with the collaborative professional's office. Collaborative Professionals are also realizing the importance of educating their staff in their supporting role in a collaborative practice, including the most efficient methods for scheduling the meetings for collaborative cases, preparing the notebooks for the team, preparing the agendas, minutes, final documents and even giving attention to the office environment and refreshment offered for a satisfactory collaborative experience for the clients.
