This program has specific training on mediation, as an alternative method in the resolution of disputes. This method needs some particular skills that will be acquired in the master's degree. In this way, the program includes the requirements that allow the graduate to officially register as a Mediator, which is an increase in their employability, since the massive use of mediation as processes would reduce the number of cases in the courts in a significant way.
