“Am I Qualified to Be a Mediator? What’s New?”

The Florida Supreme Court ADR Rules and Policy Committee [on which I serve] filed its Petition to amend Florida’s Rules for Certified and Court-Appointed Mediators relating to revising the qualifications for mediator certification and other matters. The proposed amendments are significant. In addition a proposed Administrative Order has been filed with the Petition. In order to assist in your understanding of the point system, here’s a chart reflecting the proposed changes.

This proposal is extremely important and each of the linked documents is worthwhile reading!

The case number is SC05-998. Written comments and requests for oral argument are due at the Florida Supreme Court no later than August 1, 2005. If oral argument is scheduled, it’s not likely to occur before September, 2005.

What do you think about the proposed revisions?
