Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This clinic, offered for three (3) credit hours, is generally available to eight (8) students each semester # please note that all spaces for the spring 2013 semester have been filled. Through this program, 2L and 3L students who took the prerequisite course (B563#Domestic Relations Mediation, offered August 13-17, 2012, the week before the fall semester) serve as registered domestic relations mediators in Indiana, mediating family law cases referred to the clinic from local courts. Please note that for the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semesters, the clinic and its students will be participating in an interdisciplinary training and research program with faculty and students from the IU Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences (Psychology Department). Interested students should contact Professor Applegate by e-mail (email@example.com) explaining their interest in the clinic (and related course, B563) and attaching a current resume. Students may only enroll in the clinic (and course) 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. Mediation Clinic: After completing B563 (August 13-17, 2012) students in the clinic will observe and then mediate actual cases referred by judges in local and nearby counties. Students will mediate custody, parenting time, child support, asset and debt division, and other disputes between parents in family law cases. During the semester, the students will mediate in teams of two; in some cases, the student mediators will also be working with child consultants (graduate students from the Psychology Department). Class training in the clinic will focus on interdisciplinary training (with students and faculty from the Psychology Department), the development of the students' mediation skills, exploration of advanced mediation topics, including drafting mediation agreements, effective mediation practice, domestic violence concerns, involvement of children in mediation, and the effect of certain ethical issues and concerns on mediation practice. Students will keep a reflective journal of their mediation experiences, and will share their experiences with Professor Applegate and the other students in case rounds during class. Mediations will be conducted at the law school or in the courts. The clinic will be taught and supervised by Professor Applegate. In addition, students who have successfully completed the clinic in a prior semester may also assist in mentoring and supervising clinic students, and family court coordinators may assist with supervision of students mediating cases in court.
