The CEDR Mediation Audit 2018
Welcome to the CEDR Mediation Audit 2018, run in conjunction with the Civil Mediation Council (CMC) and the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR).
This is the eighth biennial audit of mediators and lawyers and their attitudes towards and experiences of civil and commercial mediation in the United Kingdom. This year, in partnership with CPR, the Mediation Audit will be conducted in the United States of America for the first time. This will allow for points of comparison and difference to be drawn between the mediation marketplace and practice in the UK and US.
UK & US Mediator Audit – Take part
The results of the audit are widely used in the Alternative Dispute Resolution community as they help inform us all about developments and trends in the field. The primary focus of the survey is to understand and assess how the market and mediation attitudes have changed over the past two years. The results will be published in full on the CEDR, CMC and CPR websites in May 2018.
The audit is the eighth that CEDR has conducted in the last 16 years as part of its not-for-profit work to better understand and raised the profile of commercial mediation.
There is a separate survey for lawyers who represent parties in mediation (both in-house and external), and if you would like to partake in this, please see the UK Lawyer Audit below.
UK & US Lawyer Audit – Take part
The audit is being conducted on an entirely anonymous basis. For mediators or lawyers taking part, at no time will you be asked for your name, address or other identifying personal details (although at the end of the survey there is an option to insert an email address if you would like us to send you full results of the audit after publication of its findings). The questionnaire should take no more than 7 minutes of your time. Please try to answer all questions.
The Audit will close on Friday 18th May 2018.
