Edson Queiroz Foundation Mediation Program
Welcome to the Edson Queiroz Foundation Mediation Program at Columbia Law School. The Edson Queiroz Foundation Mediation Program is a partnership between Columbia Law School and the University of Fortaleza (UNIFOR) in Brazil. The program is designed to expand the teaching and practice of mediation and conflict resolution in the United States and Brazil.
Participants in the Edson Queiroz Foundation Mediation Program will have the opportunity to consider the role of mediation in national and international legal systems; develop problem-solving and conflict-resolution skills essential to innovative lawyering; design mediation and conflict-resolution programs; and explore the role of the lawyer in mediation, either as mediator or as counsel to a client considering or participating in mediation.
