About the Mediation Clinic

Since 1991, the Mediation Clinic has provided free and confidential mediation services. We mediate for the general public in the Greater Seattle area and for staff, students and faculty at the University of Washington. Students serve as neutral third parties to help individuals involved in a dispute negotiate a voluntary settlement of their case or conflict.


Typical Mediation cases include:

  • Buyer/Seller
  • Real Estate Issues
  • Consumer/Business
  • Co-workers
  • Employer/Employee
  • Housemates/Roommates
  • Landlord/Tenant
  • Neighbors
  • Student/Staff
  • General Civil Litigation
