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. Each student will write and present a substantial research paper (preceded by a rough draft). Students who have taken the Multiparty Mediation Practicum may not take this course. Students must be available to attend the two-day mediation training on Saturday, August 29 and Sunday, August 30.
