Credit points: 15
'Conciliation: Theory & Practice' is designed for both professional development training and as part of the 'Restorative Law & Practice Program' at the La Trobe Law School. Students will develop skills necessary for handling a Conciliation Conference/Mediation within an ever evolving legislative framework. They will learn and engage a variety of mediation and negotiation strategies to deal with parties in a legal setting. The subject is further designed to teach students how to act 'appropriately' and independently, while managing parties and their expectations. Students will learn how to assess and address the parties competing interests, and the different economic and emotional imperatives relevant to workplace injury disputes and other types of disputes handled via conciliation .
