Georgia Commission On Dispute Resolution
The Civil and Divorce Mediation, Mediation and Divorce Practicum and Arbitration courses have been approved by the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution and meet the training and observation requirement for registration as a neutral. It should be noted that the fact that a training program has been approved by the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution does not imply that any particular court annexed or court referred program must or will accept as neutrals those who have completed that program. Each local court program is expected to exercise its discretion with reference to the qualifications of each neutral and may inquire into the training received by such neutral. Completion of a state-approved program does not automatically qualify one as a neutral in any local program.
Continuing Legal Education (CLE)
All of Henning's Dispute Resolution courses have been approved for CLE credit in Georgia. Because professionals other than attorneys will also be attending the training, the CLE fee for attorneys who want such credit is listed separately. When registering for a course, Georgia attorneys should specify whether they want CLE credit and, if so, add the CLE fee to the tuition.
