The Supreme Court of Virginia and the Court of Appeals of Virginia will undertake mediation pilot projects beginning January 1, 2019. The mediation pilot projects will run for two years, and will be available in select civil cases where both parties are represented by attorneys. You can read the Report of the Special Committee to Study Appellate Mediation online, and read the VBA's news article on the subject here.

In 2017, at the request of Chief Justice Donald W. Lemons, the Joint Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Committee of The Virginia Bar Association and The Virginia State Bar established a Special Committee to Study Appellate Mediation in Virginia. In April 2018, the Special Committee made specific recommendations to the Chief Justice, including  the establishment of mediation pilot projects in the Commonwealth's appellate courts.

The Judicial Council approved a new level of certification for appellate mediators during the pilot projects. This course will provide the 20 hour basic mediation training for appellate mediators.
