Peer Mediation Clinic at Sussex

Last updated: Monday, 29 March 2021
The Peer Mediation Clinic offers free online mediation sessions to all students enrolled at the University of Sussex who are experiencing disputes and conflicts with their peers or students interested in consensual, peaceful resolution of disagreements.
As an effective response to interpersonal disputes, mediation affords parties an opportunity to engage in meaningful and constructive dialogue. It fosters cooperation by focusing on the parties’ shared interests and needs rather than the fixed positions into which they may have settled, whilst allowing for the fashioning of flexible, creative and personalized solutions that are mutually beneficial to all parties involved.
Whether it be between flatmates, classmates, friends or acquaintances, we understand that disagreements occur. This is where the Peer Mediation Team can come in – an enthusiastic team of seven law students who have studied dispute resolution and are trained as peer mediators, who come from various parts of the world and embrace an approach to mediation that is fully inclusive and non-biased.
