Timeframe and Schedule

Timeframe

It takes about four to six months to complete the practicum depending on the participant’s availability for mediations, the volume of cases referred by the court registry, and cancellations by the parties.

Schedule

Each practicum class begins with two orientation sessions in downtown Vancouver. Attendance at both sessions is mandatory. 

The start date for the next Court Mediation class has not yet been confirmed, but we anticipate that it will start in Spring 2015. If you are interested in participating in the next class, please take the following steps:

1. Complete the application process.

2. If your application is approved, you will be placed on a waiting list.

3. When the orientation dates for the next class are confirmed, offers will be made to qualified applicants on the waiting list in order of date of application. Applicants will have 15 days from the date of offer to confirm their place in the class with a deposit.
