Samuel Jackson and
J.D. Seminar 322
| 3 credit hours
In this skills-building course, you will develop an in-depth knowledge of the practice and principles of mediation. Emphasis is on learning the skills used by mediators, but also on becoming an effective advocate of a party in mediation. Mediation skills have become essential for attorneys working in all areas of practice, as clients demand cost-effective ways to resolve problems without litigation, and many courts require litigants to attempt resolution prior to trial. Class sessions will be devoted to a combination of lectures, mediation simulations, discussions, and videotaped mediation topics. Grades will be based upon: (1) the quality of class participation; (2) short written assignments; and (3) a written evaluation of a mediation.
