Landlord-Tenant Mediation Program

The Fulton County Landlord-Tenant Mediation Program is primarily structured as a law school externship program utilizing student mediator externs from Georgia State University, Emory University and John Marshall Law Schools. The students earn two to three law school credits per semester for participation in the program. Students receive 20 hours of general civil mediation training and training in Landlord/Tenant Law, Section 8 and Public Housing Law before mediating cases. Students initially observe and co-mediate with attorney mediators in the program and then apply for registration with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution following their training and observations. Note: Accepting this Externship may require a $150 fee to apply for registration with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution. Note: The externship requires a commitment for the fall and spring semesters. Students must also be available every Tuesday and Thursday between 1:00 and 6:00. (Students with 6:00 classes will be excused in time for their class)
