With the formal introduction of Court-Annexed Mediation, it is in the interest of legal practitioners to familiarise themselves with the process and techniques of mediation. In December 2014 Court Annexed Mediation was introduced in 12 Magistrates’ Courts pilot sites (9 in Gauteng and 3 in the North West Province) pursuant to the Court Mediation Rules. In 2019, based on the lessons and experiences learnt from the pilot, the Court Annexed Mediation services was extended to the Regional Courts in the remaining five provinces, namely, Eastern Cape, Free State, KwaZulu-Natal, Northern Cape and Western Cape, from the date gazetted by the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services during March 2019.
