  • INTRAJUDICIAL

    OUR INTRAJUDICIAL MEDIATION PROGRAM

    The Master in Mediation, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution offers the possibility of placements in the Intrajudicial Mediation Program.

     

    What is it?

    The Carlos III University’s Mediation Program (PM UC3M) is a set of human and material resources devoted to the study, research, development, improvement, implementation, review and advocacy of the mediation as a suitable conflict resolution process.
    Thus the PM UC3M is linked to the University’s Research Group Mediation, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution dedicated to developing the theory of, researching, reviewing and improving the Alternative Dispute Resolution.

      

    Intrajudicial Mediation and/or extrajudicial mediation?

    The Carlos III University of Madrid’s Mediation Program was developed linked to the Courts (particularly, the Court of First Instance and Preliminary Investigations in Leganés and later in Getafe, Madrid).
    However, from the beginning, the PM UC3M has offered also mediation to those individuals and entities that ask for help in the resolution of problems, so it also provides extrajudicial mediation.

     

    What is its mission?

    The Program aims at providing an agile and effective mediation service, which responds quickly to the specific needs of the case, so, to this end, it is based in the courthouse and offers a continuous service to the court on Monday to Friday.

     

    Who are its members?

    Its members are qualified and trained mediators, whose education and professional experience come from the legal and social spheres.

     

    Facilities

    The mediation sessions are held at three locations:

    • PM UC3M office in the Leganés and Getafe Courts
    • PM UC3M office in the Leganés Social Services facilities
    • At the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
