Description
Time is the greatest casualty of the adversarial process. There is a need to resort to other methods of dispute resolution which will not only save time, but also diminish the acrimony and estranged relationships resulting from litigation. Mediation is the effective alternative remedy since its focus is on non-coercive and consensual processes. Ever since the legislature amended Section 89 of the Code of Civil Procedure to include mediation as one of the modes of dispute settlement, a wide range of disputes, including commercial disputes, matrimonial cases, contractual and property claims, family and business conflicts, workplace disputes have been referred to mediation. This book brings out the art, techniques and skills of mediation. The author walks the reader through a full-length mediation with notes to illustrate different stages. The book shows how mediators should deal with seemingly dead-end situations and prescribes norms of confidentiality and ethics. The law on the subject and the precedents laid down by Courts in India and abroad are exhaustively dealt with. This original book, based on the author's experience over two decades, will be of interest to mediators, judges, legal professionals, companies and individuals facing or contemplating litigation, students of law and conflict resolution, and is a must-have for law and social science libraries.
