Opportunities with ODR

The Office of Dispute Resolution (“ODR”) is not currently accepting applications as the application period for the FY17-FY19 contract period (July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2019) is now closed.  Applications are only accepted during the open application period that takes place every three years during the month of March.   Applications are accepted online during the open application period.  Should needs arise during the three year contract period in any Judicial District, ODR will announce special supplemental application periods.

ODR selects its contract mediators through a process of screening applications, and in-person interviews.  The interviews include questions designed to evaluate the applicant’s knowledge of mediation and mediation role-plays in which applicants demonstrate their mediation skills.  Applicants must meet certain minimum qualifications, including 40 hours of mediation training, experience as a mediator, and substantive knowledge in the subject area in which they are seeking to provide services.

For more information about mediator qualifications please click here.

Mediators and other ADR professionals are independent contractors for the Office of Dispute Resolution and not judicial employees.
All available positions will be advertised on the Colorado Judicial Department’s main website under Careers.
