What is This?

It is a recorded course that allows you the flexibility to start, stop, and continue as your schedule permits. After completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion that can be used as part of the MC3 mediator certification process and/or an attendance record for 3.0 hours of MCLE credit.

This course includes terms associated with the litigation process, distinctions between federal and state court actions (jurisdictions generally), different phases of a civil lawsuit, special statutes that affect the mediation process and settlement, confidentiality, and the California Evidence Code.

Who Should Attend?

  • Non-lawyers: fulfills part of MC3’s medication certification requirements for a three-hour training on litigation nuts and bolts.
  • Lawyers: who want to learn about the State and Federal court litigation process. (MCLE credits – 3.0 hours)
  • All: great information to expand your knowledge of the various litigation processes. Plus, the CLE credit is often something many non-profit organizations ask you provide to them as part of your participation in their mediation services.
