Job Description

Boston University School of Law is seeking to hire a part-time lecturer to teach Mediation during the Fall 2023 or Spring 2024 semester. The three-credit class is scheduled to meet once a week, in person, on the BU Law campus.

Mediation: Theory & Practice

This course will cover the theory and practice of mediation as a mode of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) used in various legal contexts. Students master basic concepts and techniques of facilitated negotiations, and work their way, using simulations and role plays, through various mediation scenarios. Faculty work with students to develop their individual mediation skills and to learn effective mediation advocacy and settlement valuation. Through lectures, exercises, simulations and classroom discussions the course will focus on the theoretical underpinnings that guide the mediation process and the skills related to communication, problem-solving and professional judgment. Students explore the ethical and professional issues related to mediation as well as the legal and cultural constructs that shape mediation practice.

Required Skills

A JD degree, plus deep substantive knowledge and expertise in mediation, are required. Prior law school teaching experience is strongly preferred.

Applicants should email a letter of interest and a resume to Karen Pita Loor, Associate Dean for Experiential Education, at [email protected]
