Mediation in Ireland
A bill in Ireland would obligate lawyers (barristers and solicitors) to advise their clients to consider using mediation to resolve disputes. "In addition, when court proceedings are launched, it will also oblige the parties to confirm to the court they have been advised about the mediation option, and have considered it." The Irish Times goes on to say "The Bill will be received as a significant move to place the mediation option at the centre of the legal process."
