Judge Mark Frankel
Arbitrator and Reserve Judge in Madison, WI
Mark was asked to join the faculty of the Wisconsin Judicial College because of his reputation for creativity both within and outside the courtroom. There, he would later instruct judges from all around the state of Wisconsin in the various codes of court procedure and conduct. His original philosophy included teaching people how to recognize subliminal cues and other subtle nuances that can expose an otherwise apparent true remark, in addition to teaching them the law. He concentrated his efforts on advocating for mediation and arbitration because he thought they were (and still are) underutilized strategies that, in circumstances where it may not be necessary, are just as successful as a full court procedure.
In honor of his continuous assistance and guidance to the judicial and legal communities, Mark Frankel was also appointed Assistant Dean of the Wisconsin Judicial College. Later, Frankel would contribute to the Wisconsin Benchbook, the premier resource for judges in the state of Wisconsin.
Of course, his original works, publications, and tireless work were beyond the state's boundaries. He was subsequently requested to join the faculty of the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada, where he now teaches judges from across the nation on advanced evidence. He would impart the methods that would give them a distinctive perspective on the interpretation and admission of evidence, which is one of the crucial tasks of judges in a courtroom.
