Clinics: Mediation

At the start of the semester, students enrolled in the Mediation Clinic participate in an intensive seminar on basic mediation techniques.

After completing this training, each student is required to conduct at least six mediations in either Concord or Manchester District Courts. The cases the students mediate involve civil disputes in controversies within the District Court’s $25,000 jurisdiction and small claims.

In addition to acquiring skills as a mediator, students observe and discuss the role of the attorney advocating for a client during mediation.
