International Intercollegiate Mediation Tournament

Each year in November the InterNational Academy of Dispute Resolution sponsors an undergraduate tournament, the International Intercollegiate Mediation Tournament.  The intent of the tournament is to give students a real life experience as mediator and as an attorney and client.  Three students make up a team, and each must participate as mediator in one of three preliminary rounds.  Students participating have the opportunity to receive All-American recognition.

At each tournament, the day before is devoted to extensive mediation training, as well as advocacy training.  Emphasis at the tournament is placed on education and fellowship, rather than competition or winning.

Upcoming Events:
