Mediation is a growing field, and more barristers are
undertaking the training to resolve disputes in this manner every
year. Members of the Bar may be best known for their adversarial
skills, but they are also skilled in rapidly assimilating
information, evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of each case,
negotiating and providing written and verbal advice.
The barristers who appear in the Mediation Directory have all
completed training with an official provider. The course must be a
Civil Mediation Council or Family Mediation Council accredited
course of at least 40 hours in length and include role playing and
teaching in mediation procedure and ethics.
