Lawyers present disputing parties with a more civilized way of exchanging blows. With the use of laws and loopholes, both sides try to outdo each other until one has exhausted all resources and surrenders. This kind of pragmatism is present in all legal proceedings everywhere, and though it’s hostile, it’s normal within legal circles.
There is a more peaceful way, but in the desire to inflict damage to other people, some clients often forget they have choices. If you have always felt this way, the Center for Legal Studies offers you an opportunity to do good by your terms. We can help you become an official mediator through our ADR (alternative dispute resolution courses).
Less Glamor, More Interaction
Without titles, your job will be less prestigious than attorneys. But, at least, you have the comfort of knowing you can actually help people come to a decision without being toxic. You will learn how conflict escalates and how to arbritrate properly. You may not realize it now, but you will be an important presence to contending parties.
It’s also one of the things you will learn at the Center for Legal Studies: techniques for ADR. Being a mediator sounds like you only have to be the voice of reason, but it’s more complicated than that. When people are fighting over property or rights, it’s never as simple as that. This only makes your education directly vital to your efficiency as a mediator.
Avenues of Learning
At the Center for Legal Studies, we recognize that not everyone who enrolls in our courses have time for traditional schooling. With that in mind, we make our ADR course available in three formats: online, DVD and text-only. This way, you can choose what’s most convenient and effective for you.
We also encourage you to check our other offerings, most of which have something to do with legal careers. When it comes to your goal of becoming a paralegal, legal secretary or knowing about the legal aspects of certain jobs, you can count on us to help.
