Emil Andersson (LLM ’11) on his spring break trip to Bulgaria for a Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program project

“As a part of the Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program’s project for the District Court of Sofia I had the opportunity to go to Bulgaria during spring break. The project aims to help the court develop and implement a quality control system for its mediation program. During the trip I met with the different stakeholders. Together with clinical fellow Stephan Sonnenberg I also held on-site workshops where we tried to help the stakeholders to develop a shared view of quality in mediation and come up with suggestions for quality control mechanisms that would fit the Sofia mediation program.”
