JCMS regularly receives requests from students, teachers and other interested parties to observe mediations. As the number of these requests has increased, it has become necessary to set strict guidelines.JCMS cannot guarantee that mediations will occur, that parties will accept having observers or that parties will even show up.If you are affiliated with a university or college program in which mediation observation is part of your course requirements, please be sure to do the following:
For court cases, observers will be notified of the dates that mediators are in court, and will be allowed to choose from available date(s). We allow only one observer for each scheduled mediator.
Periodically we accept applications for internships. Please email email@example.com to see if any positions are available.
