An instructor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law since 1992, Professor Ellen Waldman founded and supervises the school’s Mediation Program. She also teaches Remedies, Advanced Mediation and Negotiations.
Her approach to teaching includes introducing broader concepts when covering doctrine and helping students to understand that the skills taught in Mediation and Negotiation classes are invaluable life skills, important, not simply when representing clients but in a wide variety of contexts and endeavors.
Professor Waldman’s current research is focused on mediation and social inequality, and in particular on the increasing gap between the haves and have nots in society and how that is affecting mediation practice. She is the author of a book on mediation entitled Mediation Ethics: Case and Commentaries, an in-depth treatment of the difficult cases that can arise in mediation practice.
