          Training Global Mediators

          Each summer, the Center for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution (CNDR) hosts judges and court administrators from around the globe, to train them in the latest techniques in court-connected ADR, Alternative Dispute Resolution.

          The summer Institute has garnered such high praise that some attendees have asked the Center to bring related programs to their countries.

          In November, UC Hastings Adjunct Professor Jessica Notini will conduct a four-day training for judges in Madrid, by invitation from the Fundacion de Derechos Civiles (Civil Rights Foundation). Judge Maria Rosario Garcia Alvarez, who attended CNDR’s Court ADR Systems Design Institute in 2010, found the program so worthwhile that she asked CNDR to develop a mediation training for her colleagues in Spain.

          “It’s wonderful to see that our programs are so valuable to judges that they want to share the training with others in their home countries,” said Professor Melissa Nelken. “Having the opportunity to work abroad also gives CNDR access to the latest thinking around the world on mediation and alternative dispute resolution.”

          Notini, who is fluent in Spanish, is no stranger to educating international judges; she has taught in Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru, and served as a consultant to the Congress of Peru on mediation legislation.

          At UC Hastings, Professor Notini teaches the Negotiation and Settlement course, Facilitation for Attorneys, and Advanced Negotiation.
