ONLINE MEDIATION

What is mediation?

Mediation is a private process where a neutral third person called a mediator helps parties in conflict discuss and try to resolve their dispute without going to court. When parties in conflict are unwilling or unable to resolve a dispute, online mediation is a good option.

The role of the mediator.

In mediation, the parties decide the outcome of the mediation, not the mediator. The mediator does not decide what is “fair” or “right,” does not assess blame nor render an opinion on the merits or chances of success if the case were litigated. Rather, the mediator acts as a catalyst between opposing interests attempting to bring them together by defining issues and eliminating obstacles to communication, while moderating and guiding the process to avoid confrontation and ill will. The mediator will, however, seek concessions from each side during the mediation process.

Mediation procedures.

Mediation generally begins with a joint session to set an agenda, define the issues and ascertain the position and/or concerns of the parties. This allows the parties to attack the resolution process either on an issue-by-issue or group-by-group basis. The joint session is then followed by a separate caucus between the mediator and each individual party. This allows each side to explain and enlarge upon their position and mediation goals in confidence. It also gives the mediator an opportunity to ask questions which may well serve to create doubt in an advocate’s mind over the validity of a particular position.
