James Cook University Mediation Competition

James Cook University 

Mediation Competition


This competition is aimed at providing burseries to teams of students with an interest in the legal industry. Burseries are to encourage and showcase the talents of students seeking a career in Mediation.

Mediation is a rapidly developing area in the legal industry. As part of this competition a pre-recorded Zoom session with trained mediators from the FNQ Dispute Resolution Centre will be made available to you two weeks prior on Wednesday, 31st July 2024.

Previewing notes concerning mediation will be sent to all participating schools shortly after the 24th of July, once teams have been confirmed. Please note, students will only be required to do some of the steps in the mediation process. Scoring will be centred on each team’s ability to direct the discussion between disputants in a neutral and supportive manner.
