Your invitation to hear about the recent performance and trends of the Civil and Commercial Mediation Sector.
The only audit of its kind into commercial mediation has once again surveyed the attitudes of civil and commercial mediators to a range of issues concerning their personal background, mediation practice and experience, professional standards and regulation, and priorities for the field over the coming years. Alongside the survey of mediator attitudes, CEDR conducted a parallel survey of lawyer attitudes in order to provide a client-oriented perspective to some of the questions raised. The primary focus of the survey is to assess how the market and mediation attitudes have changed over the past two years.
In addition, the Audit has sought mediators’ views and experience on two particularly topical issues this year, namely the emergence of online mediation in the light of the covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing debate about diversity and inclusion in society as a whole. The survey was undertaken using an internet-based questionnaire, which was open to commercial mediators, including all those practising in the United Kingdom, regardless of organisational affiliation. It was publicised by way of CEDR’s website and direct e-mail to the mediator contacts both of CEDR and of other leading service providers and members of the Civil Mediation Council.
