Alternative Dispute Resolution Certificate-Online



Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), also known as mediation, is geared for all professionals who are focused on “interest-based bargaining.” This intensive course, designed to train and qualify you to develop or participate in conflict mediation processes, focuses on both traditional and non-traditional dispute resolution options; it takes the mystery out of settlement processes and focuses on reaching reasonable solutions. You will review the growth and application of settlement options in the United States and cover topics such as:

  • Why conflicts escalate
  • Why mediation works
  • The mediation process
  • The role of the mediator
  • Coming to an agreement
  • Problems encountered in mediation
  • Developing ADR programs for government
  • Business and personal disputes
  • Divorce settlement mediation

 Final projects will be presented for grading to The Center for Legal Studies as a prerequisite of course completion.
