Young Mediators

Our Young Mediators project aims to equip recent law graduates, in particular, with knowledge of the range of dispute resolution processes, from mediation to litigation, and to provide them with skills to advocate for mediation in the work they do whether they are employed in a law firm or in-house. South Africa has one of the highest youth unemployment rates in the world and we aim to match each young employed lawyer on this program with a young unemployed lawyer.
