Open to all law students, the Mediation competition simulates a form of alternative dispute resolution where teams of two mediate against each other. Teams strive to achieve the best outcome for their client, while working cooperatively to arrive at a resolution beneficial to all parties. The competition provides students an opportunity to develop interest based problem solving skills through oral advocacy. Lawyers and judges provide competitors feedback regarding their performance.
