518: Advanced Mediation Certification and Courthouse Practicum
This course is for students who have already taken and passed the Mediation Certification & Courthouse Practicum. Students in this course will further develop and build upon their mediation skills by mediating actual long model cases at the Center for Conflict Resolution, as well as short model cases at the Cook County courts. Students will turn in written case summaries and assessments after the mediations and use the classroom time to discuss and learn from each other’s mediation experiences. This is a 1- 3-credit course. Grading is based on participation in mediations, class discussions and written work. Professor permission is required.
