Family and Probate Court Mediation Certification Training
and Advanced Negotiation Workshop

Thursday, July 10–Monday, July 14

Bar Conference Center
1501 Park St., Columbia


40.0 MCLE credit hours, including up to 3.25 LEPR credit hours

This fully interactive, hands-on workshop will give you all the tools you need to be an effective, ethical, certified mediator in court-connected family and probate cases in South Carolina.
If you practice in family or probate court, these training programs are mandated. Under the S.C. Supreme Court’s Probate Court Mediation program, practitioners may qualify for appointment in probate mediation cases by being certified as either a civil or family court mediator.
Trainers Mary Bryan and Jim Sarratt have experience as practicing attorneys and mediation trainers, and have mediated cases for nearly 20 years. They are dynamic, knowledgeable, experienced trainers committed to the value of mediation. They have prepared many South Carolina attorneys and other professionals to mediate and use mediation skills in law practice, business and family life.
* WARNING TRAINING IS NOT THE SAME AS CERTIFICATION anyone may take these classes to become a qualified, well-trained mediator. However, training does not guarantee certification by the S.C. Board of Arbitrator & Mediator Certification; you must also be eligible for certification, of which training is only one requirement. For all Board certification requirements, please read closely court-annexed ADR Rule 19, available at www.scbar.org/adr, along with applications, roster, FAQ’s and much more.
(Cost includes refreshments, lunch and handout materials).
