General Course Description:

The course covers mediation theory, skills, and perspectives in a variety of areas of law. Students will learn the basic skills to serve as both a neutral mediator and to work with lawyers during the mediation process. In addition to assigned readings, short papers, and class discussion, students will participate in simulated role plays, observe a court mediation, and co-mediate at least three cases under supervision.  Course work is scheduled to end by December 1.

Students are required to attend classes on Wednesday, August 21 from 3-7PM and on Friday, September 6 from 1-5PM. On August 28, September 4, 11, 18 and 25, the classes will be from 3-7PM in order to expedite training for students to begin court mediations. For the balance of the semester, students will meet on specific Wednesdays at 3PM in teams and/or in a class as a whole.
