Amelia A. Gould Representation in Mediation Clinic

In August 2020, the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University launched the Amelia A. Gould Representation in Mediation Clinic. The Clinic, in partnership with the United States District Courts for the Eastern District of New York (“EDNY”), the Southern District of New York (“SDNY”) and the Surrogate’s Court of Westchester County (“Surrogate’s Court”), offers direct legal services to clients. Under faculty supervision, law students in the Clinic provide limited scope representation to pro se litigants in court-referred mediation proceedings. Students interview clients, assess interests, analyze claims, negotiate with opposing counsel, perform legal research, and prepare documents in connection with mediation proceedings. Students act as advocates in court-referred mediation proceedings.

In the weekly seminar, students explore the practice of mediation, lawyering skills, and the substantive areas of employment law and trusts and estates. Private practitioners and attorneys from the EDNY, SDNY and the Surrogate’s Court may assist in the teaching of the seminar.

Preference given to students who have taken trusts and estates and/or employment law.
