Mediation Program

Our Mediation Program in partnership with The Civil District Court of Orleans Parish allows mediation to be accessible to to vulnerable persons within our community.

While mediation has proven itself as a quick, efficient  and inexpensive way of dispute resolution, many litigants cannot benefit from this effective process due to lack of means. To make mediation possible for the most vulnerable, LCJC has joined together with the Family Division at the Orleans Civil District Court to launch the Family Court Mediation Program. This program is designed to serve litigants who would benefit from but could not otherwise afford mediation. Through the Family Court Mediation Program, LCJC’s staff attorneys and other pro bono attorneys provide mediation for indigent litigants that helps resolve critical family law disputes.
