Brenau hosts its 13th annual Invitational Mock Mediation Tournament this weekend. Brenau students will compete against representatives from six other institutions, including some from as far away as Dallas, Texas.
Ellie Anglin, a senior conflict resolution and legal studies major from Clermont, Georgia, said the skills she has picked up at previous tournaments have been very beneficial – and not just in preparing her for a career in the courtroom.
“Mediation isn’t just for the legal system,” she said. “I learn new things and tips with every competition I attend, whether I am participating or not, and it has helped me reduce some disputes in my life practicing what I have learned.”
