2 or 3 Credits (Clinic)

Students in this clinical component course spend 10 (2-credit) or 15 (3-credit) hours per week in settings that expose them to various aspects of dispute resolution and mediation.


Law students assist in varied work related to mediation and dispute resolution. They submit weekly journals, describing and reflecting on their experiences in the field, and meet in a series of seminars with the course instructor and/or the Clinical Director to explore the relationship between the principles covered in the substantive class and their fieldwork. This course also satisfies New England Law’s Experiential Education Requirement.

“To any student thinking about MWI (Mediation Works Incorporated): just get there as fast as you can. It was such an amazing experience that I will never forget. Everyone from the top is very supportive. Being able to do their Mediation Training course was an added bonus.” —From an anonymous student evaluation of the clinic
