Lecturer in Law- ADR Law and Policy: Arbitration and Mediation

Law School Los Angeles, California

USC Gould School of Law is seeking a part-time lecturer to instruct our ADR Law and Policy: Arbitration and Mediation course.

The ADR Law and Policy: Arbitration and Mediation course is a survey of dispute resolution, primarily domestic, but with some comparisons to international arbitration. The course will begin with an introduction to the full spectrum of dispute resolution, including negotiation, mediation, arbitration, litigation and hybrid processes. We will review the ways in which the processes differ, and discuss how to identify the best process for a particular dispute.

Following this, students will then turn to the study of negotiation, with a focus on the foundations of effective negotiation and strategies of negotiation. The class will then move to the study of mediation, including the processes of mediation and representing clients during mediation. The third segment will study arbitration, including structuring of arbitration agreements, and the legal framework supporting arbitration. Next we will explore ways of combining ADR processes to match the process to the dispute. Each segment will also include a discussion of the applicable ethical standards and applicable rules.

Instructor candidates should have a JD degree from a U.S. law school, admission to the bar in a U.S. state, and at least five years of professional experience.

USC values diversity in employment.
