Mediation and Mediation Advocacy (JD-244)
This course examines the theory and practice of representing clients in a mediation setting, and is designed to provide students with both a theoretical background and hands-on experience. The course focuses on mediation from two perspectives: that of the mediator and that of the advocate. Effective advocacy in mediation has elements in common with effective advocacy in litigation, but there are critical differences. These similarities and differences are be explored through guest lecturers, class-based simulations, interactive role-playing, and de-brief discussions. Students also explore the ethical issues that arise in mediation.
