Mock Mediation

Would you like to provide your students with hands-on understanding of mediation and the role it plays in the judicial system?

Would you like to help your students develop public speaking, collaboration, problem solving, creative thinking, case analysis, self advocacy, effective communication, and practical negotiation skills?

If yes, welcome to Arizona Mock Mediation! This exciting new program for Arizona middle school and high school students focuses on learning the process of negotiation, public speaking, and quick thinking. A brief overview of the program:

  • Students compete in teams of 3, and take turns playing the roles of advocate, client, and mediator.
  • At this stage in the program's development, we are limiting participation to the first 8 schools to sign up a team in each division. If any spots remain open after the initial registration period, registered schools will have the opportunity to register additional teams.
  • The registration fee is $50 per team to help cover food expenses at the tournament.

Be sure to check the Important Dates and Competition Registration pages for more tournament details and to register your team. This program also relies on volunteer tournament judges who ideally have real-life mediation experience. If you believe you meet the qualifications and are interested in volunteering as a judge at this years mediation tournament, you can do on the Judge Registration page!
