May 5: 6-Hour Supplemental Civil Mediation Training

Seeking admission to the New Jersey Superior Court’s civil mediation rosters but you received your training more than five years ago or received your 40-hours of basic training out of the state of New Jersey?  Are you a member of the court’s Family Mediation Roster and want to join the court’s Civil Mediation Roster?


NJ Court Rule 1:40-12(b)8 provides that candidates for the court’s civil mediation rosters who received their training out of state of more than five years ago take a 6-hour supplemental civil mediation training course approved by the court.  Rule 1:40-12(b)1 allows for a member of the Family Mediation Roster to take the 6-hour civil supplemental training (along with the mentoring requirement) to join the Civil Mediation Roster.

NJAPM's training class will fulfill these requirements, and can also meet the AOC's four hour annual CE requirement for those already on the roster (pursuant to Rule 1:40-12(b)2). The only prerequisite for this class is that you must have taken a 40-hour basic civil mediation training course.
