After receiving mediation training, many mediators opt for the most known and traditional path of mediating litigated cases. While there are many benefits to this route, mediators that are not part of the large panel providers often find it difficult to get information about the quality of their mediation practice to potential consumers of mediation services.  Therefore, their skills may go underutilized, which is a loss for the community.  The good news is that there are many non-traditional and unexplored career paths for mediators that would put those skills to use and are very fulfilling and rewarding for the mediators that choose to pursue them.

Join us on Saturday, April 7, 2018 from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM at USC Gould School Of Law and learn how private companies and public institutions are realizing that mediation is a very cost-and time effective alternative for resolving internal disputes. As a result, there is an emerging demand for people with mediation skills and training who are familiar with conflict resolution strategies and negotiation principles. Immediate Past SCMA President Jason Harper leads a panel of mediators who have successfully pursued alternative careers and want to share these pathways with you.  Learn how you can incorporate your mediation skills into non-traditional mediation careers. Sign up today!
