Whether you are a mediator, collaborative professional (lawyer, family or financial professional) or a settlement minded negotiation lawyer, the Settlement Clinic has something for you.
Family Dispute Resolution is the hardest work you'll ever love! It requires knowledge, skills, reflective practice and self-care. The Settlement Clinic provides the resources you need to spread the word about Collaborative Practice and Mediation, to grow your Settlement Practice and to be better and better at the work you do. The Settlement Clinic offers community where you can connect and gather with like minded colleagues in personal small groups where stories, successes and frustrations can be shared and learned from.
