Tulsa, OK is looking for community volunteers to help in the Early Settlement Mediation program. They need local residents who would like to serve as a volunteer for the court system as mediators who are trained to settle lawsuits and disputes. The program will be sponsored by the Supreme Court of Oklahoma and the City of Tulsa Municipal Court.
The Early Settlement Mediation program will handle cases such as real estate, merchant/consumer, tenant/landlord, family, individuals with disabilities education act, divorce, adult guardianship, and child permanency.
