Model "Agreement to Mediate"
The following template was prepared by the Department of Justice for use by its client state agencies. This “Version A” is intended for use in mediations in which an Oregon state agency is a party, at least one non-public body entity is also a party to the mediation and an independent third-party is the mediator. It assumes that the parties are seeking the maximum confidentiality available and that all state agencies who are parties to this mediation have adopted mediation confidentiality rules as required by ORS 36.224. Additional information regarding mediation confidentiality is available at http://www.doj.state.or.us/adr/pages/adr32.aspx.
