Prairie Land is a volunteer-run organization providing by-appointment mediation services. 


We are a nonprofit organization established since 2008 to provide residents of Champaign-Urbana and surrounding communities with the option to resolve disputes themselves; voluntarily, nonviolently, inexpensively and within a safe space in our community.

Our Mission

We strive to reduce court congestion, promote peaceful alternatives to litigation and provide education, training and volunteer opportunities for community members in conflict resolution and prevention. Our mediation services can save participants at least $1,250 in lawyer fees for similar services. 

Services We Offer 

Mediation

Mediation is an informal process in which a neutral third party helps people in conflict negotiate a mutually acceptable agreement. Learn more about the mediation process or you can Contact Us to schedule a mediation session.

Very Important Notes:

  • Please call us at least 2 weeks before your next court date, if possible.
  • We make every attempt to accommodate client schedules. A court referred mediation appointment is as important as a court appointment. Making time is necessary.
  • A volunteer answers the phone between 3 PM - 5 PM everyday. Leave a message with a record of your request and someone will answer during those times. Emailing your request to info@plmediation.org is also appropriate. 
  • To cancel or reschedule an appointment, please provide at least 24-48 hours notice before your appointment. 
  • Since the Center is by-appointment-only, no-call-no-shows are rescheduled at least a week after the wasted appointment.
  • PLCMC is not an arm of the Champaign County court or court record system and we do not archive signed agreements for client request. All document requests are made through court
  • All mediation sessions are strictly confidential. There contents are never disclosed to attorneys and letters are only ever sent to the presiding judge.
  • Unsigned agreements are not kept on file for more than 24 hours.
