Mediation is one of the fastest growing areas of legal practise. Nearly every major law firm and most smaller ones have opened specialist mediation divisions to reflect the fact that mediation has become the preferred mechanism for settling civil, business, workplace and employment disputes in the UK, the Commonwealth and internationally.
The course provides practical global exposure through regular mock sessions, continuous feedback and real world examples.
How does the international educational programme work?
The educational programmes are skills based and intensely practical with over 70% of your time spent in hands-on observed mediation sessions. The programme is presented by highly experienced tutors and mediation practitioners who give comprehensive feedback and guidance throughout.
The personal learning format provides a rich and stimulating environment with plenty of opportunities to interact with the course trainers and fellow candidates. Case study mediation exercises, group discussions and de-briefing sessions enable you to practise the skills you have learned. We create a thought-provoking and challenging educational environment and the tutors are available throughout the programme to discuss any aspect of the course or practical difficulties that emerge with you.
How is this programme assessed?
You will also be required to produce an assessed written assignment (which should take you between 6-8 hours) demonstrating your thorough theoretical and practical understanding of the mediation techniques you have learned.
