Free Mediation Clinic

(Books, Law) Permanent link

The law library is partnering with trained mediators from Dispute Resolution Services to provide a free clinic, designed to give patrons helpful information about how to resolve civil disputes and non-court conflicts. What is mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process to help people resolve conflicts. Trained mediators do not take sides, but make sure everyone has a chance to talk. If those involved are able to resolve their conflict, the mediator then helps them to create a written agreement. Examples of conflict include:

  • I moved and left my apartment in good shape, but the landlord won’t return my security deposit.
  • My neighbor parks his car in our shared driveway and blocks my garage.
  • I bought new tires, but one won’t hold air. The store won’t honor the warranty and replace it.
  • My ex-spouse put our child in a different school without telling me.

Call 553-7920 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
