Mediation - Civil Mediation [Course]

As you are no doubt aware, the Rules regulating the mediation process in the Magistrate’s Courts were published on 18 March 2014 and came into operation on 1 December 2014.

The new rules facilitate settlement of cases through mediation. Past experience has shown that mediation is a growing area of legal specialisation and, when used appropriately, can offer a valuable approach to reduce the time and cost of litigation.

This course is primarily designed to prepare attorneys to be mediators. Attorneys will also be equipped to advise clients on the mediation process. When designing the course content, the draft standards for Civil Mediation were taken into account.
