Mediation Clinic

Students enrolled in the Mediation Clinic initially participate in an intensive, experiential 30-hour training in mediation theory and practice at the start of the semester.  Through an ongoing weekly 3-hour seminar, students study theories of conflict, negotiation and mediation, and are exposed to many different models of mediation, learning to choose the interventions and techniques appropriate for different settings.  These are put into practice mediating live cases at a weekly 4-hour placement at a community mediation center or court.  Depending on their placement, cases may include neighbor disputes and divorce asset distribution.
