738 20 Y - Mediation Clinic
This combined seminar and practicum provides a study of critical legal, ethical, and policy issues that have emerged with the increased use of mediation for the resolution of disputes and an opportunity to develop skills as a mediator. Each student will mediate disputes at the Franklin County Municipal Court and/or Franklin County Night Prosecutor’s Program under the supervision of the staff attorney. Students who take this course MUST have at least one afternoon available (excluding Friday) and Tuesday or Wednesday evening free each week for clinic activity. Students will not be asked to mediate every week, but a consistent availability is necessary to schedule mediations.
