Dispute Resolution Clinic

Each clinical semester begins with intensive classes taught on-campus which may include weekend days.

The legal profession increasingly relies on alternative dispute resolution. The Dispute Resolution Clinic provides student interns with ample opportunity to mediate and arbitrate while learning ADR options and improving communication skills. Students mediate or arbitrate cases that may include diversionary cases for juveniles arrested for misdemeanors; restitution mediation for victims and offenders; County Court mediation; community dispute mediation; and court-annexed arbitration. They may also assist with Teen Court by preparing teen-aged students serving as attorneys to “try” cases of alleged juvenile offenders.
