This Week in the Law School

We've reached the end of the fall semester! The Cubs won the World Series, Donald Trump got himself elected President, and Fidel Castro passed away. After a semester with that kind of drama, final exams should be a breeze! Lots of ExamSoft help sessions this week. ILA still has no idea what those are, but we trust you will attend and maybe let us know at some point. If strings are your thing, we'll have a harpist here on Tuesday. Request Ride of the Valkyries as you prepare for Parrish's CivPro final.

Study hard, relax when possible, and have a tremendous winter break. We'll see you all back in early January as we kick off Wintersession.

Basic Mediation and Restorative Justice Training in February

The Community Justice and Mediation Center (CJAM) offers a 40-hour training program for community members interested in learning about conflict resolution, mediation, and restorative justice. Participants will enhance their interpersonal skills in communication and listening, problem solving, and negotiation, and they will increase their understanding of restorative justice philosophy and methods, the sources of conflict, and the processes leading to constructive conflict resolution. The training will benefit any community member concerned with managing conflict and its resolution. The training provides the background and skills necessary to work as a community mediator and restorative justice practitioner and qualifies participants to volunteer in CJAM's programs. The training will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. over five weekend days: February 11, 12, 18, 19, and 25, at the Law School. The training will be led by senior mediators and restorative justice practitioners. Tuition is $300, $275 if received by January 28. Scholarships are available. For more information, e-mail (training@cjamcenter.org) or, phone the office at (812) 336-8677. Go to our website to download an application.
