Abstract

Court-connected mediation programs provide citizens with resourceful options to litigation and over the past three decades have rooted themselves in every state in the nation. The Court-Annexed Mediation Program (CAMP), a volunteer mediation program providing services to the county and small claims Courts in Denver, faces a bleak economic forecast and change in leadership. The primary goal of this capstone project was to research options for continued success of the program. Accomplishing that goal involved analysis of government and nongovernment court-connected mediation programs and identifying hallmarks of successful, sustainable court-connected mediation program models. Three areas were identified: (1) funding sources, (2) active support from, and partnership with stakeholders and, (3) collaboration with colleagues regarding their challenges and models for success.
