ADR Educational Materials
The JAMS Foundation offers teaching and training resources to law professors, ADR instructors, and trainers in order to introduce students to dispute resolution concepts and techniques. The following materials are currently available from the JAMS Foundation.
- Mediating a Sexual Harassment Case: What Would You Do?: This DVD consists of a series of brief vignettes simulating the mediation of an employment dispute and raising issues and challenges that can arise in the course of mediation. The video does not advocate a particular approach to mediation, leaving it to the viewer to determine how to respond to the questions and issues presented. An accompanying Teaching Guide includes a detailed script of the video, role play exercise, and separate training components for mediators and for attorney advocates in mediation.
- Skills of a Legal Mediator: This DVD demonstrates specific techniques used by commercial mediators to resolve cases. Centering on an international commercial dispute, the video highlights skills ranging from active listening and reframing to decision analysis, mediator proposals, range bargaining, and confidential listening, allowing teachers and students to focus on specific issues, techniques or stages of the mediation process. Includes written role play information.
These materials are available at no cost only to instructors intending to use them in educational settings and are not currently available for personal use.
