Description:
Join us for a panel discussion focused on how and where to obtain the practical experience and mentorship you need to take your basic mediation skills to the next level, as well as how to join various mediation panels.  Given the reality of COVID-19, there has been a greater demand for qualified mediators to serve their communities and the courts. Our panel of experts from Community Dispute Resolution Centers (CDRCs), state and federal courts, local organizations, and private practitioners – will talk about opportunities for participation by mediators with diverse backgrounds as well as the challenges the courts and the local communities are facing.
