Employment discrimination/mediation practicum Law 246

Represent Clients at an employment discrimination mediation in Advanced Mediation Advocacy Practicum (Law 246) Students can put their mediation advocacy and creative problem-solving skills into practice and learn about employment discrimination law by representing clients at mediations at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Illinois Department of Human Rights. Students and clients consistently praise their experiences in this program. (3 experiential learning credits) Students meet with clients and represent them on a limited basis at mediations with supervision/assistance from an experienced attorney. It is helpful if students have dispute resolution/client counseling course (mediation, negotiation, client counseling) or team experience, but not required. Students do not need any background in employment law. For more information email Prof. Teresa Frisbie, Director of the Dispute Resolution Program tfrisbie@luc.edu
