Virginia's Judicial System

Appellate Mediation Pilot Project


The Supreme Court of Virginia and the Court of Appeals of Virginia are each operating a pilot program for mediation through December 31, 2023. This program is available in select civil cases where both parties are represented by attorneys. The Clerk of each court will notify counsel that if both parties agree to mediate the case, there will be a 30-day automatic stay of proceedings to allow the participants the opportunity to mediate.
