This intensive two-and-a-half day learning experience is designed to enhance and refine one’s existing mediation skills. The seminar features one full day of three-person mediation simulations, guided by individual mediation coaches. The training is led by Northwestern University Law School’s Lynn Cohn. The training empowers attendees to share dispute resolution techniques, skills, and expertise with others. The instruction and comprehensive support materials also enable participants to serve as mediators and ombudsmen. 


Prior experience or training in mediation is helpful for attendees, but not required.
