Central District Needs Mediators

I recently received a letter from Judge Barry Russell, as did everyone else on the mediation panel I assume, asking for help in increasing the Central District Mediation Panel.  They had a high of 252 mediators but are down now to 173.    For attorneys reviewing this post, I highly recommend joining the panel.  You have to have practiced for 5 years I believe and complete a 30 hour training program at Pepperdine but I found the program very beneficial to my practice.  Once you are on the panel, I believe you commit to do one no-charge, half-day mediation per quarter.  If you are interested in joining the panel check out the information on the bankruptcy court website under mediation.
