Last Updated: February 19, 2019




John K. Mitchell is a mediation lecturer in law at the USC Gould School of Law. Mitchell mediates in federal and state courts, and he also mediates privately for attorneys and disputants.

Mitchell holds a bachelor’s degree in rhetoric from UC Davis and a JD from the University of West Los Angeles School of law. Bringing more than 20 years of experience as a real estate attorney and real estate broker, Mitchell discovered that mediation offers a superior way to resolve most disputes.

Mitchell co-teaches Master of Laws (LLM) and Master of Dispute Resolution (MDR) students in USC Gould’s Mediation Clinic with Professor Richard Peterson, director of the Judge Judith O. Hollinger Program in Alternative Dispute Resolution. Students in the Mediation Clinic mediate actual controversies litigated in California courts. Students apply the methods, tools and techniques they have acquired in class to address disputes and to bring them to a successful conclusion.

Mitchell is passionate about bringing peace to volatile situations, mentoring students on the peace process and teaching students about the ethical and effective ways of finding a mediated peace.
