Mock Mediation Club

Mediation is a fast growing form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), used in all forms of dispute resolution including criminal, corporate, and other civil disputes. Victim-offender conferencing and mediation programs designed to reduce school violence have been evaluated and shown to produce a number of positive outcomes for victims, offenders, and community members. Through the Mock Mediation model, students are exposed to a mediation setting in which they simulate the process of mediation to find the best possible solutions to the conflict in a peaceful manner.

The Mock Mediation Club of Georgia Southern University was established in the fall semester of 2013, with the purpose of enabling students at Georgia Southern University to be exposed to Mediation and the skills associated with the process. Mediation and conflict resolution is a useful skill to students pursuing any avenue of study and the opportunity to engage in the concepts of mediation is provided by the club. To date, the club has received 20 regional and national awards, including Small Student Organization of the Year.

The practice of mediation prepares students for a variety of professions including criminal justice, business, law, communications, psychology, and much more. By preparing for competitions and on campus events, our members are apt in the skills of communication, critical thinking, negotiation, and collaboration. Mock Mediation Club gives members the ability to utilize skills that have become pertinent in today’s job market.
