The Washington County Circuit Court Small Claims and Landlord Tenant mediation program accepts new volunteer mediators on a rolling basis. To be considered, a mediator will need to have completed a Basic Mediation Curriculum of at least 30 hours as outlined in
State Court Administrator Guidelines Regarding Mediation Training (oregon.gov).
If accepted to the program, mediators will complete a six-hour court systems training provided by the Court. The Court offers a comprehensive orientation/apprenticeship process, ongoing supervision and mentoring by experienced mediators, and continuing education training sessions. Volunteer mediators are asked to commit to mediate twice a month for a year after the court systems training and orientation process.
Small claims mediations are virtual and take place Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 9 am and 1 pm. Mediators can choose the days and times that work best for their schedule. Landlord Tenant mediations are in-person at Washington County Circuit Courthouse, 150 N. First Ave, Hillsboro, OR 97124 every Monday at 8:30am.
