B563 Domestic Relations Mediation

Description This course, offered for three (3) credit hours and available to up to sixteen (16) students, is the prerequisite and companion course to B691#Family and Children Mediation Clinic. Through this course, 2L and 3L students are trained to serve as registered domestic relations mediators in Indiana, and become eligible to mediate family law cases referred to the clinic from local courts. The course will be offered one time for the 2015-2016 school year: August 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, 2015, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day, and August 10, 2015, from 8:30 a.m. to 3: p.m. Students who complete the course also will take B691#Family and Children Mediation Clinic in either the fall 2015 or spring 2016 semester. Interested students should contact Professor Applegate by e-mail ( explaining their interest in the course (and related clinic, B691), and attaching a current resume. Students may only enroll in the course (and clinic) after receiving advance approval from Professor Applegate to enroll. Given the limited number of spaces, any interested student should contact Professor Applegate in advance of 3L registration for the fall 2015 semester. Mediation Course: This course meets Indiana state requirements for forty (40) hours of mediator training in order to become registered Indiana domestic relations mediators, as well as completing the three-credit hour skills-based course in family law mediation. In accordance with state licensing requirements, experts in communications and mental health issues will teach several of the classes during the course. In addition to Professor Applegate, other experienced mediators will periodically attend to demonstrate and/or provide feedback to students during role plays, thus exposing students to different styles of mediation. After successfully completing the course (and related requirements), the students will apply to become registered domestic relations mediators in Indiana. Interested students should understand that for state licensing purposes, attendance during the entire the course is mandatory. In addition, there is a substantial amount of reading, as well as class preparation and simulated role plays in the course. This training serves as the foundation for students to mediate cases referred by local courts in the clinic.

Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement.
