Melissa chairs ODR Sub-Committee on Cross-Jurisdictional Issues

In December 2020, Melissa Kucinski was appointed to an Executive Committee organized by Mediate.com to explore and make recommendations on best practices in training family mediators in online dispute resolution. As part of her work on the Executive Committee, Melissa will be chairing a Sub-Committee that focuses on exploring the complex cross-jurisdictional issues that are inherent with ODR matters, where mediators can more commonly handle matters that are beyond the borders where they typically practice. A large portion of Melissa’s mediation practice focuses on working with cross-border families, including mediation of Hague Abduction cases, which often include litigation in multiple courts in multiple countries.
