Law 707 - Mediation
Mediation is now a central aspect of lawyers’ work in the litigation, transactional and public sector contexts. This Foundational Skills Course has a dual focus. It will examine how lawyers provide informed consent and represent clients effectively in mediation. It will also prepare students to serve as a neutral mediator in both court and private settings.
The class covers mediation theory, skills, and perspectives in a variety of areas of law. In addition to assigned readings, short papers, and class discussion, students will engage in simulated role plays as both a neutral and lawyer representing a mediation participant, observe a real court mediation, and participate in feedback sessions with the instructors.
Course work is scheduled to end by November 1. Class will meet the following Wednesdays from 3-5:50PM: August 27, September 3, 10, 17, October 1, 8, 15, and 29. Class will meet on the following Fridays from 2-4:50PM: August 29, September 12, October 10 and 31.
Students are required to travel to a courthouse in Los Angeles County to observe a court mediation -- parking reimbursement is available through the Clinical Office.
