Mediation Clinic

Overview

The Mediation Clinic gives students the opportunity to act as mediators in a variety of dispute settings, such as the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri, the Missouri Commission for Human Rights, the 13th Judicial Circuit Small Claims Court for Boone County and with private attorneys. Mixing federal cases with small claims cases provides clinic students with an opportunity that few other mediation clinics offer. The clinic, which is housed in the School of Law’s nationally recognized Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution, is headed by James H. Levin, an experienced practitioner and trainer in dispute resolution and a founding member of the National Association for Community Mediation.
