Acting as a neutral third party, intern will discuss AAMS services, answer questions, and conduct intakes with diverse artists and arts organizations. Will be involved in pairing mediators and arbitrators from our panel with cases, scheduling mediation and arbitration sessions, and observing those sessions as appropriate and with consent of the parties. Depending on experience, interns may act as conciliators, acting as a third party neutral 'go-between' for the parties to the dispute.
