International Mediator Certification

From the blog mediator blah...blah...

ABA Journal Law News - October 2007 - The International Mediation Institute announced it's getting closer to establishing the first global mediator certification.

The word is that a law degree likely won’t be mandatory, but a certain amount of experience in a specific area will be. And there will probably be several certifications rather than just one.


The IMI is based in The Hague and was formed in April 2007 by the American Arbitration Association, the Singapore International Arbitration Centre and the Netherlands Mediation Institute. See my previous IMI post
