Mediators are attorneys who agree to serve under Local Civil Rule 101 and have been certified as mediators by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission. They must have at least eight (8) years of civil trial practice or membership on the faculty of an accredited law school in order to be considered for appointment to the court's list of certified mediators.

Mediation is used to secure the just, speedy and inexpensive resolution of the controversies while preserving the right of all parties to a conventional trial. Mediation is designed to focus the parties' attention on settlement rather than on trial preparation and to provide a structured opportunity for settlement negotiations to take place. Nothing in this process is intended to limit or prevent the parties from engaging in settlement procedures voluntarily at any time.
