Those students who wish to mediate in Dependency Court must be available on Monday or Tuesday and pass the court's background check. Work study positions are also available each semester. A two-semester commitment is requested. Students get invaluable hands-on conciliation and mediation experience. Students also do intake work, convening of cases, conciliation, and co-mediation under professional supervision. C-MAC is available to take in the fall, spring and summer semesters.
