Simulations & Law - Mediation Training

Module 4

Day 5

Simulations & Law for Mediators

This module is in two parts -

  • Law for Mediators
  • Simulations

Law for Mediators:

To work effectively as a mediator you will need some knowledge of law and procedure. This module gives a crash course in what you need to know. It is equally important whether you are legally qualified or not. You will learn how to use this knowledge as a Mediator working with the parties:

  • Contract & Tort – their elements in practice

  • The legal system – a practical ‘flowchart’

  • Costs – what they are, how assessments and taxation works

  • The mediators legal liabilities

Simulations:

Participants will be divided into groups for simulated mediations that will continue throughout the day.

Critiques and reviews of the mediation will be carried out as appropriate.

Delegates will:

  • Put into practice all that has been learned

  • Try new ideas and methods in an active role-playing environment

  • Have the opportunity to make mistakes before assessment where they won't matter!
