This course provides functional knowledge of the power and practice of mediation, which is increasingly being used to resolve both litigated and non-litigated disputes. Mediation employs a natural third party, the mediator, to help disputing parties make better decisions concerning whether and how to settle a dispute. This course examines the theoretical, legal, ethical, and practical aspects of mediation through lecture, discussion, video simulations and extensive interactive exercises and role-plays. Students will learn to conduct mediations in step-by-step process. This course also covers how to represent a client effectively in mediation and explores appropriate applications of mediation.
