Less than 2% of civil cases are resolved by a judge or jury. Most are settled through negotiation or some other dispute resolution process, including mediation. The Mediation Clinic will prepare you for this reality. For one semester, you will mediate real legal disputes, including civil cases in the District Court for Baltimore City, employment discrimination cases, business disputes, and community conflicts. You may also support peer mediation in K-12 public schools and monitor relevant mediation legislation in the Maryland General Assembly. While in the clinic you will complete the Mediation Theory and Practice Seminar (fall semester), which satisfies the requirements for court-appointed mediators under Maryland Rule 17-304.
I think Mediation Clinic is honestly one of the most diversified experiences you can get in law school.
