This practicum offers students the opportunity to remotely mediate one or more commercial lease renegotiation for business owners and landlords impacted by COVID. Students must either be taking Mediation (244.8) concurrently or already have taken the class. Students will be required to take a 1-2 hour commercial lease training, a mediation preparation training and will submit a 5 - 7 page memo reflecting on the challenges and learning associated with the mediation experience.

Students apply by emailing Darshan Brach at and in one or two sentences 1) explain why you want to do the practicum and 2) stating whether you have taken Mediation (Law 244.8) or are enrolled in Mediation in Spring 2021. After that email, I also ask that students have a follow-up conversation with me so that I can explain the practicum in more detail. I encourage early applications as the openings are limited to 3. The deadline to apply is Monday, November 16th and after that date applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Pre-requisite or be concurrently enrolled in Mediation (Law 244.8)
