738.09 - Mediation Practicum
Professor: Sarah Rudolph Cole
Semester: 2012 Winter
Second Writing Requirement? Yes
Professional Responsibility? No
Special Notes: Limited Enrollment
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 Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evening free each week for clinic activity and attend the weekend mediation training. 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 another College of Law course in mediation may not take this course.
This Practicum has a mandatory training weekend on January 21 and 22.
