Championed by Supreme Court judges, mediation is a form of dispute resolution where a third party attempts to resolve a dispute between two or more people, saving them the time, money and stress of a court case.
It’s one of the biggest growth areas in the legal profession today and we’re proud to be leading the way in its training, with two family-focused courses.
Led by professionally trained mediators this course teaches the art of successfully facilitating an effective settlement between parties. As well as contributing to the 去赫特福德郡 Award, it’s designed to equip you with hugely valuable skills that will make your CV stand out to potential employers. It’s split into two parts, one in each semester:
Family 调解 1: Children -
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.
Family 调解 2: Property and Finance - Once you’ve taken the first mediation course, you can move onto the second stage, focused on property and finance. Again following the Family 调解 Council guidelines, it introduces you to the current legal framework.
Both courses broaden the understanding and approaches you’ll be able to offer future clients. They also give you valuable understanding of how to resolve some of the most difficult situations clients may face. Not only will this build your confidence, but it will also make you a stronger candidate for graduate positions.
You’ll develop the skills of a confident, competent mediator, including how to read body language, work empathetically with parties, deduce substantive facts, listen effectively and remain impartial. You’ll also build strengths in effective interviewing, problem-solving, dispute resolution, conflict management, mediation and negotiation. We’ll teach you to confidently interpret and complete complex documents and forms.
If you’re interested in a career in family mediation, this course gives you an excellent head start, with specialist skills. Even if that’s not where your legal ambitions lie, family law touches many legal cases and situations, so a good understanding is a valuable asset, along with effective mediation and negotiation skills.
