2010 – A Year of Progress for Mediation
2010 may well come to be viewed as a watershed year in the positive evolution of the whole process of dispute resolution. Clarity has now been given to the position of Mediation in the Legal System. Heretofore, there has been a lack of definition of Mediation and Conciliation – everybody seemed to have an idea based on some preconception.
Mediation could save State €200m
UP TO €200 million could ultimately be saved by the use of mediation instead of litigation by State bodies , according to a study of the State’s legal spend.
New Mediation Training Courses for 2011
Due to demand and requests from trainees during the last year, Mediate Ireland has decided to expand the training programs provided in the coming year. We will continue to run our very successful “Introduction to Mediation Advocacy” CPD training throughout the year.
For Lawyers who wish to become Mediators we have developed a “Mediator Training Program” which we believe is unique in the marketplace. It will cover, for example the psychology of getting parties to agree, look at the many different forms that a mediation session can take and an in-depth analysis of Mediate’s Ireland unique approach to Mediation which has proven so successful.
