Family mediation offers divorcing couples a cooperative and constructive way to resolve differences and plan for the future. Minnesota now requires that mediation be considered early in the dissolution process. The interactive course provides students with the opportunity to become qualified family neutrals under Supreme Court Rule 114. Students study conflict resolution and emotional issues surrounding divorce as well as learning specific techniques for mediating custody and property disputes. Special attention is paid to identifying families experiencing domestic violence. A variety of teaching methods are used, including demonstrations, role play, and discussion.
Grading: Changed to a letter grade scale beginning with the Jterm 2013 offering of the course.
