This civil court/commercial mediation training course is certified by the NC Dispute Resolution Commission under Rule 8 as the basis for certification as a Superior Court mediator. The certification as a Superior Court mediator is the basis for certification for all other, non-family mediation programs in the State and Federal courts in North Carolina, in Workers’ Comp cases, and cases in the Office of Administrative Hearings.

More importantly, this training is simply the best training anywhere in the country for civil trial court, business, and commercial mediation. The several thousand who have attended in the past 25+ years can testify to their improved skill in negotiations and in their newfound skills as mediators.

Civil trial court mediation has a bad name in some circles within the national mediation community. It is often called “evaluative” and “directive” because of the way in which some lawyers and judges conduct their mediations. This course will demonstrate that mediation does not have to be a directive process even when it’s conducted in the context of civil litigation. In fact, our lead trainer, Andy Little, has contributed to the theory and practice of mediation by developing an array of techniques and understandings that enable mediators to remain facilitative in the context of attorney-driven, money-dominated negotiations. This work is set out in detail in his book, Making Money Talk, which was published by the American Bar Association.
