Selina Shultz is an outstanding mediation instructor. She educates through illustration and example and does an amazing job of turning a large diverse class into trained mediators. It isn’t easy teaching lawyers a new way of thinking, but Selina does it with persuasion, example and a great deal of enthusiasm. The feedback she provides to students for her students’ practice mediations is well thought out and very helpful. She is particularly good at acknowledging different points of view and style, so that students can consider what works best for their own personalities and also for the wide variety of circumstances and individuals one meets in mediations. Selina is truly one of the best educators I have ever encountered.
