Internship Program Structure
Our internship program is structured sequentially. The intern begins with a period of research and observation, followed by a period of co-mediation, and then, if the intern is approved, a period of lead mediation. All steps of our internship program are fully supervised by accredited mediators. Interns are involved in all stages of a file, from initial contact with the clients and counsel, intake/screening interviews, pre-mediation preparation, mediations, follow up, drafting memoranda arising from the mediation, continued correspondence with parties and counsel, and file closing. Briefing and de-briefing takes place before and after each contact with the clients.
Note: we offer full (100 hours) or partial (50 hours) internships.
