Note: Placement on any court roster is at the discretion of the local Administrative Judge and participation in a course that is approved does not guarantee placement on a local court roster. Pursuant to Part 146, court- based mediation rosters require both a combination of mediation training and experience mediating. In addition, some courts may require additional training and experience beyond Part 146’s requirements. Acceptance on court rosters depends on a court’s need for mediators at any given time and may include a court’s need for mediators with specific case-type training or experience.
