Mediation has been recognised by the Supreme Court as being the largest growth area within the law and there is a real appetite within the legal sector to encourage parties to mediate prior to going to court.
At the Hertfordshire Law School, we have recognised the importance of mediation and of training the mediators of the future as well as providing a valuable service for the community.
The School has set up the Hertfordshire Mediation Centre which will handle both commercial and workplace mediation as well as providing training facilities.
Learn essential skills
As part of our commitment to you, we also recognise that it is essential to give you the opportunity to learn the skills and art of mediation.
As part of our co-curricular offering we offer all our students the opportunity to learn the skills of a mediator from our professional world class accredited mediators. You will learn skills including:
- how to read body language
- being empathetic
- deducing substantive facts
Our LLB students have represented us Internationally at the International Chamber of Commerce World Mediation Competition in Paris.
