Frequently Asked Questions

This is a 30 hour course, designed to be taken on your time, at your own pace. To enhance retention, we recommend taking one module at a time, applying the learning to your daily legal practice, and dedicating a few hours per week. On average, students finish the course in 4-6 weeks.

The Effective Mediation Advocacy Course is priced at $1,997. For more information on pricing and payment options, please visit our website or contact us directly.

Most of our students are full-time professionals. The course is designed to be spread over a few weeks, allowing the knowledge to embed in long-term memory, which enhances retention. This approach ensures that the concepts “stick” and that you can apply them to your daily legal practice.
Mediation skills are for those who want to work as mediators, helping others resolve disputes in various contexts, including commercial, community, and workplace mediation. Mediation advocacy skills, on the other hand, are for lawyers who want to continue representing clients but also want to help them through the mediation process. These skills do not replace litigation skills but rather supplement and expand advocates’ abilities to assist their clients.

The course was designed by professionals who specialize in adult learning research. Our instructors consist of the most experienced mediators and pioneers in the field. The course is taught around a 5-party, commercial mediation, enabling students to shadow (virtually) with Bruce Edwards, who leads parties from the first conversation through to settlement. This approach allows you to witness the mediation advocates in action and observe their real-time impact on the process and their client’s case.
