Law 707 - Mediation
Faculty listed in alphabetical order – please see faculty specific description for requisite information.
General Course Description:
Mediation is a central aspect of lawyers' work in many contexts, including litigation, transactional, private and public sector. This course combines a theoretical exploration of mediation as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism, including its public policy and ethical implications, with practical training on (a) how to present various dispute resolution options to clients and obtain their informed consent; (b) how to represent clients effectively in mediation; and (c) how to serve as a neutral mediator. Students will develop these skills via class exercises and discussion, observations, weekly written assignments, participation in simulated role-plays and feedback sessions with the instructor. The course will also feature guest lectures by Professor Forrest S. Mosten, as well as other prominent mediation professionals.
