The Mediation Clinic provides law students with an opportunity to develop both conceptual knowledge and behavioral competency in mediation. Clinic participants will be trained to be mediators during the fall semester in a 5 credit class. During the spring semester, students will mediate more independently to service difficult and diverse cases including landlord tenant and small claims cases.
The Clinic has four components: 1) Students must be available to participate in two full days of mediation training in the beginning of the semester. 2) Students will be required to devote 5 hours per week for mediation sessions and debriefing in addition to a 3) weekly seminar and 4) weekly meetings with Clinical Supervisor where they will discuss the mediation sessions and to prepare for mediations.
