|Opis:||In the recent years, the implementation of alternative dispute resolution methods has increased. One of these forms is mediation. It is a process in which a third, neutral and impartial person is enabling a high level of communication between the two parties. The mediator cannot pass a ruling in the dispute, they merely encourages the parties to enter into an agreement which is in the best interest of all involved. The main principles of mediation are confidentiality, flexibility, voluntariness, and inability of the mediator to decide in the dispute.
Since 2011, the District Court of Ljubljana has been offering the possibility of engaging in mediation. The process is led by a qualified judge, retired judge, lawyer, social worker, or psychologist.
As mediation becomes more frequent, more relevant information is required, ensuring the parties to have more confidence in this process.
This thesis presents all features of mediation: the main principles, entities (mediator, clients, the role of lawyers, involvement of children etc.), subject (what can be resolved with mediation), court-mediation in detail, statistics, and probably the most important part – the agreement and its enforceability. |
