Mediation Advocacy LAW-828

This course recognizes that many legal disputes are resolved in mediation. Students are introduced to the process of mediation, explore the philosophical approaches to mediation and different styles of mediating, develop a working knowledge of the stages of mediation, and cultivate skills to become effective advocates throughout each stage of the process. Students will learn about mediation both as an independent mechanism and as a strategic tool to resolve litigation. They will also develop an understanding of the evolving roles of mediators and advocates and establish an appreciation for the legal, ethical, and psychological issues that permeate the process. Through simulated exercises and reflective discussions, students will develop confidence as client representatives and a proficiency in mediation advocacy.
