Bringing Mediation into the Mainstream in Civil Justice in Scotland – Free Breakfast Seminar
6th August @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until 8th August 2019
On Friday 28th June 2019 Bringing Mediation into the Mainstream in Civil Justice in Scotland was launched. This report is the result of six months of research by Scottish Mediation overseen by an Expert Group chaired by Alun Thomas and John Sturrock QC.
The report proposes a coordinated strategy for ‘normalising’ the use of mediation in the civil justice system. It seeks to build on existing infrastructure to minimise the cost to the public purse and to ensure mediation is embedded as seamlessly as possible. It recognises that there is a need to change the ‘one size fits all’ model of litigation and consider how the use of mediation might be increased. Hoping things will change is not a sustainable policy and Scotland needs to adopt a more proactive approach to deliver a viable pathway to mediate civil disputes.
