The course will offer students a theoretical grounding in conflict resolution and communication skills, as well as experiential practice in various alternative dispute resolution processes. This is an interactive class, and students will perform a variety of in-class simulations and exercises to develop and hone skills in listening, problem-solving, negotiating, and mediating. Class participation is essential to this class.
The grade for the class will be based on class discussion and participation in exercises (25%); a semester long journal based on readings and reflection (25%); an arbitration observation and accompanying essay (25%); and a law review critique paper (25%).
