Mediation Workshop at Northampton

Thursday, 15 March 2012

Nick Rees from the Oxford Brookes School of Law and three of our law students visited Northampton University recently to help run a workshop focusing on mediation in the context of Family Law. Kate Penn, Edward Thomson and Sarah Hudson performed some scenes from a fictional case to aid Nick and the class in learning more about the skills needed to be a successful mediator. It was clear to see that all three students enjoyed taking part in this session with Sarah particularly relishing her role as the 'scorned woman'. The session was very well received by students and staff alike at Northampton University and we expect to go back to do something similar in the future.
