We are reaching out for volunteers with expertise in the area of mediation and alternative dispute resolution to participate as a judge for INADR at Mediate’19 competition!

We are looking for practitioners in the field of mediation to assist with judging and we are reaching out to you to see if you would be available to assist us.

Judges training will be provided before the start of each competitive round to ensure you are familiar with the judging process and to answer any questions you may have. As well as, all judges prior to the competition will receive Judging Instructions Guide via email.

The competitive portion of the event consists of three preliminary rounds, followed by final rounds wherein each student on each team gets the opportunity to compete in the role of a mediator, attorney-advocate, and client.

As the judge, you would be given a scorecard and asked to evaluate each student on his or her performance in each role. At the end of each competitive round you will be given an opportunity to provide direct feedback to participants about their performance in the competition. At the end of the competition awards will be given to the top performers in each category.

Your willingness to participate as a judge will go along way toward ensuring participants are inspired and excited about the prospect of pursuing mediation and ADR as a career. We hope you will take time to consider joining us at this event.

Please follow the link for registration.

Judges registration deadline is 29 November 2019.


Mediate’19 is regrettably not in a position to cover costs for travel and hotel accommodation due to financial constraints. The Organizers may provide participating professionals with a list of convenient hotels if so desired.
