196: Alternative Dispute Resolution Workshop

Credit Hours



One credit workshop focusing on dispute resolution in an employment setting.  Workshop takes place over two days.  Both the first and second day of the workshop involve resolution of an EEO complaint in full length simulations -- the first day using mediation, and the second day resolving the dispute using arbitration.  Students are expected to read and research in preparation for both days of the workshop. Participation in the one credit workshop requires attendance in an evening Human Resources and Employment Relations (HRER) course.  Students will be assigned to teams and will begin working with HRER team members at this evening session.   Each workshop day is followed by a debriefing session.  All participants will be observed and evaluated by employment attorneys skilled in ADR.  Enrollment is limited to students simultaneously enrolled in Professor Sacha Coupet's other ADR course and students who are seeking an intensive mediation and arbitration experience in addition to that provided by the foundational ADR course.
