SPIDR New England President, Susan L. Podziba, and MAMPP Executive Director, Melissa Broderick, sent a joint letter to the MBA opposing the creation of the lawyers-only referral service.
"This would be like doctors referring themselves out as acupuncturists," said Susan Podziba, President of the New England Chapter of the Society of Professionals in Dispute Resolution (NE SPIDR).
"For the public-which needs an alternative to costly litigation-the MBA's proposed referral service could well result in the referral of disputes to lawyers with the most minimal mediation training, while at the same time excluding highly experienced professionals and programs with proven track records in dispute resolutions and mediation," she added.
"The MBA's proposed training isn't enough to compensate for the adversarial orientation that lawyers are taught in law school and rely m in their practices. Mediators bring to the process of helping parties work together a "human quality not often found in litigation," Podziba said.
