Abstract

This chapter examines Court Mediation Schemes and other schemes. Time-limited, fixed-cost mediations can take place through Court Mediation Schemes and the Civil Mediation Online Directory. Some courts also operate judicial mediation schemes. There are many industry- and sector-specific schemes, and mediation is now being employed in some criminal cases to achieve restorative justice. Mediation can be used effectively in multi-party or complex disputes, although modifications may need to be made to the process to take account of the multiplicity of parties and/or issues. It can also be used in public sector and regulatory disputes. There is a move towards mandatory information mediation assessment meetings at which the parties are required to consider but not undertake mediation.
