What is Mediation?
by Jim Melamed
Mediation may be thought of as “assisted settlement.”
Negotiation may be thought of as “interactions for agreement.”
For this reason, mediation is “assisted interactions for agreement.”
Central to mediation is the principle of “informed approval.” So long as participants comprehend the nature of a contemplated mediation procedure and efficiently grant take part in the described process, virtually any mediation procedure is suitable and possible.
Key Qualities of the Mediation Process
Voluntary – You can leave at any time for any reason, or no reason.
Collective – As no participant in mediation can enforce anything on anyone, everyone is motivated to collaborate to resolve the issues and reach finest arrangements.
Controlled – Each participant has total decision-making power and a veto over each and every arrangement of any mediated arrangement. Nothing can be troubled you.
Confidential – Mediation is generally private, as you desire and agree, be that by statute, agreement, rules of evidence and/or benefit. Mediation discussions and all products established for a mediation are normally not permissible in any subsequent court or other contested case, except for a completed and signed mediated agreement. Your mediator is obliged to explain the extent of mediation privacy and exceptions to that privacy. The level of privacy for any “caucus meetings” (meetings between the mediator and individual celebrations) need to also be defined.
Informed – The mediation process provides a full opportunity to obtain and incorporate other and legal professional information and recommendations. Person or equally appropriate specialists can be maintained. Professional recommendations is never determinative in mediation. The participants constantly retain decision-making power. Conciliators are bound to encourage parties to obtain legal counsel and to recommend them to have any mediated contract including legal concerns reviewed by independent legal counsel prior to finalizing. Whether legal advice is looked for is, ultimately, a decision of each mediation participant.
Unbiased, Neutral, Well Balanced and Safe – The mediator has a balanced and equal duty to help each moderating celebration and can not favor the interests of any one celebration over another, nor must the mediator prefer a particular result in the mediation. Your mediator is ethically obliged to acknowledge any substantive bias on issues in conversation. The mediator’s function is to make sure that celebrations reach agreements in a voluntarily and informed manner, and not as a result of coercion or intimidation.
Gratifying and self–responsible – Based upon having actively took part in voluntarily resolving concerns, participant complete satisfaction and the probability of compliance are discovered to be raised through mediation compared to court choices.
