What is Mediation?
by Jim Melamed
Mediation may be considered “assisted settlement.”
Negotiation may be thought of as “communications for arrangement.”
For this reason, mediation is “assisted communications for agreement.”
Central to mediation is the idea of “educated permission.” Long as participants comprehend the nature of a contemplated mediation procedure and successfully permission to get involved in the described procedure, practically any mediation procedure is proper and possible.
Key Qualities of the Mediation Process
Voluntary – You can leave at any time for any factor, or no factor.
Collaborative – As no participant in mediation can enforce anything on anybody, everyone is inspired to collaborate to fix the problems and reach best agreements.
Controlled – Each participant has total decision-making power and a veto over each and every arrangement of any mediated contract. Nothing can be imposed on you.
Confidential – Mediation is normally private, as you prefer and agree, be that by statute, contract, rules of evidence and/or opportunity. Mediation conversations and all products established for a mediation are normally not acceptable in any subsequent court or other contested proceeding, except for a settled and signed mediated arrangement. Your mediator is obliged to describe the extent of mediation privacy and exceptions to that privacy. The level of privacy for any “caucus meetings” (meetings in between the mediator and private parties) need to also be defined.
Informed – The mediation process uses a complete opportunity to obtain and incorporate legal and other expert info and guidance. Professional recommendations is never ever determinative in mediation. Whether legal guidance is sought is, eventually, a choice of each mediation participant.
Unbiased, Neutral, Balanced and Safe – The mediator has a equal and well balanced responsibility to help each moderating celebration and can not favor the interests of any one party over another, nor must the mediator prefer a specific lead to the mediation. Your mediator is ethically bound to acknowledge any substantive predisposition on problems in conversation. The mediator’s role is to ensure that celebrations reach agreements in a voluntarily and informed way, and not as a result of coercion or intimidation.
Satisfying and self–responsible – Based upon having actively took part in willingly solving problems, participant fulfillment and the possibility of compliance are found to be raised through mediation compared to court choices.
Mediation discussions and all materials developed for a mediation are generally not acceptable in any subsequent court or other contested case, other than for a finalized and signed mediated contract. Your mediator is obliged to describe the extent of mediation privacy and exceptions to that confidentiality. Whether legal recommendations is looked for is, ultimately, a choice of each mediation participant.
Impartial, Neutral, Balanced and Safe – The mediator has a well balanced and equal obligation to help each mediating celebration and can not prefer the interests of any one party over another, nor needs to the mediator favor a specific outcome in the mediation.
