Mediation Clinic

Course Number: 
LAW.862
Credits: 
8

The Mediation Clinic is a one semester program in which law students earn 8 hours of academic credit mediating disputes under the supervision of a faculty clinic director.  The law students will be trained in advanced mediation and other practical conflict resolution skills, and then will (1) assist disputing parties to achieve mutually agreeable settlements by serving as mediators, and (2) provide conflict resolution educational workshops in the community.

Prerequisites: Students wishing to enroll in the Mediation Clinic must meet the requirements of R.I.G.L. § 9-19-44, which mandates that mediators have received a minimum of 30 classroom hours of training in mediation.  Law 733: Mediation meets this requirement, but other training courses might also be acceptable in the discretion of the clinic director.
