Mediation Practicum students remotely resolve cases in Savannah

Friday, October 9, 2020

Thanks to a partnership with The Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire, third-year law student Allison “Allie” Evans and second-year students Hiance M. Castro Guerrero and Marissa G. Hill have used their skills as registered neutrals to virtually mediate civil cases in the Savannah area. These Mediation Practicum students are approved mediators with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution, and each is handling approximately one small claims case per week. Practicum supervisor Rob McNiff said some litigants find that virtual mediations are a more convenient way to resolve their disputes.
