MN Deeds WIOA

This intensive course is designed to train and qualify students to develop or participate in conflict mediation processes. Participants will review the growth and application of settlement options in the United States. The course focuses on both traditional and non-traditional dispute resolution options. Alternative Dispute Resolution (Mediation) is geared for all professionals who are focused on “interest-based bargaining.” This course takes the mystery out of settlement processes and focuses on reaching reasonable solutions. Successful graduates of this non-credit course will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.

Topics covered

  • Lesson 1:  Introduction, History and Origin of ADR-Mediation
  • Lesson 2:  Techniques for ADR: The Mediation Process & Role of the Mediator
  • Lesson 3:  Business Disputes, Settlement Issues in the Business Sector, Employment Disputes and Employer/Employee Relationships. Job search strategies and placement possibilities will also be discussed. 

Participants will be expected to complete reading and homework assignments and will choose or be assigned project reports that deal with ADR topics. Independent project development is encouraged. Final projects will be presented for grading to The Center for Legal Studies as a prerequisite of course completion.
