Law for Mediators

Due to popular demand, LSM is pleased to offer this all new one day course for mediators. The course may be done before or after the mediation course.

Whilst it is not essential for a mediator to be a lawyer, an understanding of legal principles and the legal system is certainly an advantage in many mediations. A mediator with an understanding of the legal system, timeframes, and tests can ably reality test a participant's case.

On the course we will cover:

The English and Welsh legal system - Courts and Tribunals

The lifecycle of a claim

An overview of Civil Procedure Rules

The role of Solicitors, Barristers and Judges - the 

How a judge will "find" a case

The standard and burden of proof

Negligence/breach of duty

Causation and damages

Expert witness evidence

Lay witness evidence

Methods of funding litigation

Legal costs and disbursements

Sanctions for refusal to mediate (and failure to respond to an invitation to mediate)

Legal definitions and "jargon"


This is a classroom taught course. The course will be led by either a senior qualified Solicitor or Barrister and is recommended for all non-lawyer mediators.
