A quick guide to Alternative Dispute Resolution: Mediation

Mediation is a typical ADR process which involves the parties in a dispute heard before a neutral third party, such as a mediator, who shall guide and expedite negotiations between parties to, hopefully, reach an agreement to settle the dispute. A significant role of the mediator is that he or she will not force any of the parties to come to an agreement; this agreement shall be a voluntary one. Parties are also actively encouraged, before trial, to attempt in a session of mediation, although parties cannot and will not be forced to do so by the Courts.
