The Bar Association, through the ADR Committee, offers accreditation to members under the National Mediation Accreditation System. Applications are now open and can be made online here. For assistance with using the online system, please use this guide.
Applications are sought from members of the Bar who hold a current practising certificate with 5 years' experience wishing to become an accredited mediator or be re-accredited as a mediator as well as those who may wish for their names to be included on the Bar Association's list of Supreme Court mediators for 2018-19.
You may apply to become an accredited mediator and not apply for your name to be included on the Association's court lists - the application provides you the option. Please note however that you must be accredited by the Bar Association should you wish your name to appear on either Court list.
Please contact Reception on (02) 9232 4055 Megan Batchelor at BarADR@nswbar.asn.au if you have any queries.
