The following text reproduced from their website:
Mediation is a process in which an impartial third party assists disputants in finding a mutually acceptable solution to their dispute. Parties may use the SMU Conflict Resolution Center either before or after a lawsuit is filed. If parties agree to use mediation, they may contact SMU directly to arrange for a convenient day and time. Once a Lawsuit is filed, a judge may order mediation and appoint the SMU Center as the mediator. All parties involved in the dispute will then be contacted and mediation scheduled.
How it works
Program alumni, faculty and current students who have completed at least 200 training hours as well as local dispute resolution professionals perform the mediations on a voluntary basis. There is a $100.00 per party administrative fee to reserve the date and cover the costs of scheduling
If you would like to speak with someone regarding the process, or to schedule a mediation, please call the Center's coordinator, Angela Mitakidis, at 972-473-3486 contact us by email at Resolution@smu.edu to set a date and time.
