Smack in the middle of a prolonged and painful divorce process, which included a trial, I enrolled in a MA program in Mediation and Conflict Resolution. There I am in the middle of trial learning about negotiation techniques.
On top of the degree I have had opportunity to get certified in specific areas. Last semester it was small claims court mediation.
Best yet.....DRUM ROLL.....
Today I completed the certification program in Divorce Mediation!
Getting divorced from the dimwit has set me on a new career path.
There is a wonderful life on the other side of hell.

That is awesome, and I did something very similar! I've thought about specializing in mediation too, but under up in legal research and writing.
