This year's Edwin H. Perry Fellowship recipients, Christopher Ballantine, Gayla Cissell, Claire Rogers, Abigail Fargen, Andrew Henson, Maria Teresa dela Cruz, Jacob Davis, and Catherine Head, spent spring break in mediation training at Just Solutions, Inc. As a mediation training and services group, Just Solutions exists to create, facilitate, and teach collaborative processes for managing conflict and building community.
The free training is made possible through an endowment established by local attorney, Edwin H. Perry.
Our students will now be able to participate in mediations referred from the Jefferson County Family Court in conjunction with the Family Law Pro Bono Mediation Project.
Below are some photos of our students during a training session.
