thank you for registering!
Thank you for your interest in No Lawyers Allowed. We received your application and will begin to process it. Please note that some applications may take longer to process than others while we work to verify application information. You will be notified by email about whether you have been selected.
If you are selected as a No Lawyers Allowed mediator you will be eligible for our roster of mediators. To become eligible, you will have to: (1) pay a $250 annual licensing fee; (2) complete No Lawyers Allowed mediator training; (3) remain in good standing with your bar; and (4) maintain your insurance.
When a dispute is registered with No Lawyers Allowed in your area of practice and in your geographic region, you will receive an email with the mediation assignment. You will have 24 hours to run a conflict check and accept or decline the assignment. If you do not accept the assignment or you do not respond to the email within 24 hours, it will be offered to the next No Lawyers Allowed mediator.
No Lawyers Allowed collects all fees from the participants so you don’t have to. You will receive three-fourths of the mediation fees paid by the participants. You will be paid within one week of a mediation that you conduct or a cancelled scheduled mediation. If the participants cancel a scheduled mediation, and do not reschedule it, you will receive $250 for reviewing the participant mediation statements.
The number of mediators eligible to register with No Lawyers Allowed in your geographic region will be based on demand, and the ability of registered mediators in the geographic region to serve that demand. We will not register every applicant that comes along. Some will be denied and some will be wait listed for when demand requires more service. We want to keep our No Lawyers Allowed mediators busy, but not too busy.
Because of the way No Lawyers Allowed mediation is designed, it is possible for a mediator to conduct two mediations a day. But, be honest with yourself. Don’t accept two mediations a day if the workload affects the quality of the services you provide.
And, you know all those cold call and email inquiries you receive at your office from real people with real disputes that don’t quite justify hiring lawyers? Consider referring those folks to No Lawyers Allowed at nolawyers.org. It will be good for them and good for keeping No Lawyers Allowed mediators busy.
