The Center program has been approved under Part 146 by the New York State Unified Court System’s Office of ADR Programs as 24-hour initial + 16-hour case-type specific combined training (Divorce). Please note that final placement on any court roster is at the discretion of the local Administrative Judge and participation in a course that is either approved or pending approval does not guarantee placement on a local court roster.

The Ackerman Institute recommends graduates of our advanced mediation training to a mediation mentorship program through our partnership with FamilyKind and to internship opportunities through our relationship with the New York Legal Assistance Group.
