Mediation-broadly speaking, the process of assisting the negotiation of others- is being increasingly used to resolve legal disputes. This course explores mediation from both theoretical and practical perspectives. As well as examining the structure and different approaches to mediation, students will develop skills for engaging the mediation process effectively in every role. While students will experience and study mediation from a variety of perspectives, it is the implication for their role as lawyers that forms the common theme.

Note: It is very highly recommended that students complete LAW 430 Negotiation before taking this course.
