The cost to litigate disputes is enormous. Statistics have proven time and time again that mediation resolves more disputes in less time for less money and with less stress, according to a CRC press release.

Trained mediators help the disputants as neutral third parties by facilitating communication and resolving disputes whereby the disputants can craft their own agreement.

Internship hours are available for trained mediators.

Participants who complete the course will receive a certificate as a certified mediator. Receive 11 MCLE hours (9 for general MCLE and 1 hour each for Bias and Ethics). Total registration fee is $295 per registrant; group discounts and limited scholarships are also available.

Registration includes lunch and snacks. Register online at or call 530-477-6517 for further information.
