Prospective Civil Mediators
- The Civil Mediation Program is governed by court orders and administrative procedures. Mediators in the civil mediation program must have a law degree and be actively enrolled in the bar somewhere in the United States. Cases are most often assigned to mediators based on the case type and the mediator's experience and legal expertise.
- Mediation participants are required to complete a Confidential Settlement Statement (CSS) one month prior to the mediation, which describes the issues in the case and the current status of negotiations. Prior to the scheduled mediation session, the mediator will review the CSS and contact the attorneys or pro se parties to assess the posture of the case with regard to settlement discussions up to this point. During the mediation, the mediator assists the parties and their lawyers in exploring possible options for settlement. Through a series of joint and individual meetings with all parties and attorneys, the mediator works toward a mutually acceptable agreement, typically within a two-hour period.
- Mediation is conducted each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning at the Multi-Door Mediation Center. Cases may be continued for additional sessions by agreement of the participants. Complex cases are typically scheduled for mediation in the mediator's office and often require several sessions to complete.
