Representation in Mediation Competition
Note: Important dates, sign ups, updated documents, and results can be found at www.wlumootcourt.com/mediation.
Competitors sign up in teams of two. One competitor plays the role of the attorney, and the other acts as the client. Two teams meet in the presence of a mediator and work towards resolution of their difficulties. Each round involves a mediation period and an opportunity to self-critique.
Students are evaluated on their ability to negotiate in a mediation setting and their balancing of the roles of client and attorney. The winning teams are invited to represent W&L at the ABA-sponsored Regional Mediation Competition.
