723 Mediation Theory and Practice (3)

This course will examine both the theory and practice of mediation from the perspectives of the mediator, attorney and party. The course covers negotiation theory, stages of the mediation process, the role of the mediator, mediation advocacy, ethical issues in mediation, and the challenges of resolving disputes outside of the traditional judicial process. Students will participate in regular simulated mediations to gain both mediation and mediation advocacy skills. Readings, exercises, lectures and simulation debriefs will encourage a rigorous analysis and critical assessment of current mediation theory and mediation practice.
