On November 15, 2007, the Florida Supreme Court amended the Rules and removed Bar membership requirement for Certification as Circuit Civil Mediator (No. SCO5-998). These Rules now provide a true point-based mediator certification system. No longer must one be an attorney to become a Certified Circuit Court Mediator. http://www.flcourts.org
