Rebekah Smith to Serve as Mediator for Maine Program

On Nov. 28, the Maine Human Rights Commission announced former Skadden Fellow Rebekah Smith (‘00) will be on its first roster of mediators for its new Third-Party Neutral Mediation Program. The commission, the state agency charged with enforcing Maine’s anti-discrimination laws, hopes the mediation program will allow it to resolve cases at an early stage in its investigation process and in a way that allows the voices of the parties to be heard without investing substantial time and money in litigation. Rebekah helped draft model rules and policies for the program.
