In-court training

The job of a professional mediator is to seek out spaces for dialogue, shared agendas and circles of communication between the parties to a conflict.

UPF-IDEC is now in its fourth year of training mediation professionals, specializing in the management and resolution of conflicts in spheres ranging from private and company law to social disputes. This master program is approved by the Government of Catalonia and accredited by the Ministry of Justice as a Mediation Training Centre. In fact, the centre has signed an internship agreement with the Department of Justice for students to intern at the L'Hospitalet Courts during the 2014/2015 school year.
