Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation Co-Founder and President-Elect of the Academy of Professional Family Mediators, Michael Aurit, will join the faculty at Arizona State University’s acclaimed Lodestar Dispute Resolution Center at the Sandra Day O‘Connor College of Law as an adjunct professor. He will teach his new course, Divorce and Family Mediation, beginning in the Spring 2019 semester.
“Michael is a natural instructor as he has a great ability to take difficult concepts and make them understandable,” said Art Hinshaw, Director of the Lodestar Dispute Resolution Center. “Students in his class will love him.”
The Lodestar Center is a recognized center of excellence in the field of dispute resolution and is consistently ranked nationally among the top law school dispute resolution programs by U.S. News & World Report, ranking 7th in 2019.
“Joining this outstanding faculty is a genuine honor,” said Aurit. “I am wholeheartedly invested in teaching a new generation of professionals who may help support healthier conflict resolution for the benefit of divorcing parents and their children. ASU should be applauded for its leading-edge dispute resolution curriculum, including the addition of this course in Divorce and Family Mediation.”
Aurit, an Arizona attorney, focuses his practice exclusively in the area of divorce mediation. The Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation has also partnered with The Lodestar Center to provide unique internship experiences for ASU law students enrolled in the law school’s mediation clinic.
“The Aurit Center is a teaching mediation firm,” Aurit said. “We believe in providing exceptional, one-of-a-kind educational internship experiences for ASU Mediation Clinic students, and in turn, our interns have made valuable contributions to our mediation work with clients.”
Michael Aurit’s course is available to those ASU students enrolled in the Masters of Legal Studies in Conflict Resolution program, as well as ASU law students, and students pursuing their Masters of Social Work.
