Course Outline: The Mediation Clinic and Mediation Process Class go together to create one three hour course. The one hour graded Mediation Process Class is the classroom component associated with the two hour pass/fail Mediation Clinic. The classroom component (mediation process) is intended to provide the students with further mediation training, advanced mediation and communication skills, scheduling into courts and the BBB, and discussion of cases mediated and 40 hours of mediation certification training.

The Mediation Clinic must be taken in conjunction with the 1 credit hour graded Mediation Process Class. Prerequisite: Good Academic Standing and 40 hours of mediation certification training. For more information regarding the Mediation Clinic contact Tasha Willis, tlwillis@central.uh.edu.

The only first day assignment will involve scheduling. Once the students are registered, they will receive an email providing them the schedules for the Harris County Dispute Resolution Center, the Greater Houston Better Business Bureau, the Harris County Justice of the Peace Courts and the EEOC. This email will provide them with the instructions they will need to spend the first day of class scheduling mediation and reviewing instructions for beginning mediating in all of the above locations.

After student registration opens, there may be instruction mode changes to this course up through two weeks before the first day of classes for the term, but notice of such changes will be sent to then-registered students. Contrary to the UH information, some student materials may not be available online, such as an assigned casebook.
