Mediation Clinic

This class introduces the participants to the skills required to serve as mediators of small claims cases in the NH District Court. The classroom portion of the course provides the students with the necessary skills and techniques utilizing classroom instruction, role-playing and demonstrations. The clinical portion of the class is conducted with the students mediating actual small claims cases in the District Court. Mediations are subject to the courts schedule but generally require the commitment of six afternoons. To enable the student to begin mediating cases, students are expected to participate in an intensive training early in the semester on two Fridays from 12:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.



Grading: Based on performance in classroom, written paper and development of skills mediating actual classes.
