Chapter Summary

The use of mediation as an efficient and relatively inexpensive method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has increased significantly in the past decade, due in some part to passage of The Alternative Dispute Resolution Act of 1998, H.R. 3528,1 which formally made ADR an integral part of the judicial system in federal district courts. The Federal Judicial Center (FJC) has been offering judges training in mediation (as distinguished from judicial settlement conferences) for approximately ten years. The first FJC course was taught by private trainers, but since then, the course has been taught by magistrate and district judges, already experienced in the area. This chapter deals only with training programs that are part of a comprehensive ADR program, that is, programs directed by the end-use provider, whether court or private.
