The EDNY ADR Department is currently accepting applications for a new pilot program entitled the EDNY Mediator Incubator.
The Mediator Incubator is designed as a means to recruit and train junior attorneys (less than 10 years of experience) to serve as mediators on the EDNY Mediation Panel. Incubator candidates will participate in an initial orientation and training session, and then be permitted to observe three EDNY cases and co-mediate three EDNY cases under the supervision and guidance of experienced EDNY mediators. Upon completion of their observations and co-mediations, incubator participants will be eligible to apply for membership to the EDNY Mediation Panel. Additional information about the Mediator Incubator is available here: https://www.nyed.uscourts.gov/mediator-incubator
As this is a pilot program,
the initial class will be very small (most likely 4 candidates). Below
is the link to the application which is due on April 1, 2019:
The U.S. District Court for
the Eastern District of New York serves a wide variety of litigants, including
persons of varying age, race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual
orientation, physical or mental ability, religion, socioeconomic and family
status. The Court’s ADR Department recognizes that mediators and arbitrators
with a wide variety of cultural and life experiences enrich the program
by bringing diverse perspectives to resolving disputes. To that end, applicants
of all diverse backgrounds and experiences are encouraged to apply.
