Train With the Team Shaping Mediation in North Carolina and Beyond
Leading the Way in Mediation Instruction
In 1987, CDSS designed and implemented the Criminal Court Mediationprograms of Wake, Vance, Warren, Granville and Franklin Counties. Thousands of civil and criminal cases have been resolved through these programs, easing overcrowded dockets and affording the courts needed time to try cases that must be resolved through trial. CDSS trains mediators and administers this vital program.
In 1999, CDSS designed and implemented the first North Carolina pilot study to assess the process and results of collaborative law in the family arena, resulting in the training and development of the first and largest Collaborative Law practice group in the State.
