Each clinical semester begins with intensive classes taught on-campus which may include evenings and weekend days.
The legal profession increasingly relies on dispute resolution. The Dispute Resolution Clinic provides student interns with ample opportunity to mediate and engage in other dispute resolution processes while learning dispute resolution 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 matters. Students may facilitate and participate in Restorative Justice Community Circles, as well as work on Housing Authority hearings and court-ordered Eldercaring Coordination cases.
