Mediation Clinic

Experiential Course Requirement? Yes

Seminar? Yes

Professional Responsibility? No

Prerequisites: None

Course Description: This course provides opportunities to develop skills as a mediator, along with basic study of mediation law and policy issues. The course combines the features of a regular law school class, a clinic, and a seminar (satisfying either the seminar requirement or the experiential course requirement, but not both). For the clinical component, students will receive skills training through role plays and a videotape exercise, and then serve as a mediator for the Franklin County Small Claims Court and other forums. Students who have taken the Multi-Party Mediation Clinic may not take this course.
