Full description

In litigated matters, there is an ever-increasing drive toward mediation. While the judiciary have shied away from compulsory mediation, they have been happy to provide a very high level of pressure towards engaging with it.

There is a lot of advice for lawyers about what mediation is, rather less about how to practically prepare for it. This webinar aims to redress that balance by providing tips on the effective use of mediation including when to refuse mediation and selecting a mediator as well as assessing offers.
