Mediation in Juvenile Court


This program will review the role of mediation in juvenile court matters. We will discuss the process including referrals, funding, forms, and filings as well as general case scenarios. From what type of juvenile court matters can be mediated to the responsibility and role of the mediator, mediation can be a useful tool for bringing parties to a resolution involving children that takes into account the needs of individuals when children are involved.

This was a thought-provoking presentation. Well done!

Awesome Autumn.

The course included a good explanation of Rule 38.

Autumn was poised, professional and informative. She kept my interest even though she had a bad cough. Good job!

Very informative.

Great presentation of the process of and issues in mediating in juvenile court!

This presentation helped make me aware of the multiple considerations and parties that are needed for a successful juvenile mediation.

I found it really interesting to think about how the mediator would interact with the GAL. That is something I hadn't considered and found interesting since there is no bright line rule.
