LAW 707 - Mediation

Mediation is now 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 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, written assignments, participation in simulated role-plays and feedback sessions with the instructors.
