Mediation saves time and money, and is less of a drain on emotional resources compared to litigation. It thus plays a critical role in ensuring access to justice for all segments of society.
In the post-pandemic world, with courtroom access curtailed and endemic delays in civil cases, mediation plays a more critical role than ever in providing access to justice for disputants. What are courts, non-governmental organizations, law schools, and the private sector doing to fill this need and what more can be done?
Mediation Weeks 2020 events will address what is being done now and ideas for the future.
