Representation in Mediation Competition
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.
