"I was impressed with how much I learned during this process. Before this course I didn't think I would be ready to begin my mediation practicum, but now I'm looking forward to it!"

"After 30 years practicing law, I expected this course was only a requirement that I had to check off to transition into mediation. This course helped me to understand my clients better and taught me my style as a mediator."

"I feel like there was a 'take away' that I will use from every single component of the training. Thank you."

 "I always enjoy a training where the instructor is prepared, is knowledgeable, covers all the material expected, considers different learning styles, and follows a pre-set agenda with still being flexible and in-tune with the needs of the individual. I learned a lot and enjoyed the whole week!"

This is a Basic 40-hour Mediation Training which satisfies most state and court basic mediation requirements. Conducted by Dr. Clare Fowler at the University of Oregon School of Law in Eugene, OR with a limited audience (comprised of 3 family law attorneys, 1 commercial and workplace attorney, 1 therapist, and 1 student). This course is pre-recorded and approved for 40 hours of continuing mediation credit in Washington state and 40 hours of CLE credit in California--and reciprocally in many other states.  Upon completion of the course, the participant will receive a Certificate of Completion.
