Mediation and experiential learning: how a mediation clinic can inform a law-based curriculum
Waters, B. 2011. Mediation and experiential learning: how a mediation clinic can inform a law-based curriculum. International Journal of Clinical Legal Education. 16 (2), pp. 90-96.
The perception that students of Law and Legal Studies should learn about a variety of methods of dispute resolution and not just litigation, has prompted the Department of Law and Criminal Justice Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University in Kent UK to establish a mediation clinic as a focus for undergraduate experiential learning. The author of this article will consider the importance of discipline based research and the integration of clinical legal education within the core curriculum, the benefits offered by a combined live and simulated curricula approach in the context of mediation and the importance of providing a practical input during the academic stage of legal education.
