Law and Practice for Non-Lawyers – Part 1

The Status of Commercial Mediation and the Courts

Part one of our Law and Practice for non-lawyers training will take place on Thursday 10th June.

Non-lawyer mediators have sometimes felt that their lack of legal training has put them at a disadvantage – this two-part programme (UK/Common Law specific) addresses this concern.

Participants will be equipped with understanding of the legal concepts commonly encountered in mediation. Beyond this technical knowledge, a level of competence will be developed to enable confident engagement in legal issues as they arise.

What is the law that covers mediation? Do you know the incentives and sanctions that surround mediation in the legal system? This session will answers these questions and ensure you understand in more detail what a Mediation Agreement must contain to protect both the mediator and the parties.

In this session participants will develop an understanding of:

  • English civil law, the role of common law and the courts system
  • The effect of the Civil Procedure Rules, Part 36 offers and the costs rules
  • The rules relevant to ADR orders
  • What an agreement to mediate must contain and relevant common law

A detailed handbook is provided for pre-reading and subsequent reference.

There will be ample opportunity to ask questions about any topic which participants have never dared to ask – no question is too silly!

Who should attend these sessions?

The course is designed specifically for non-lawyer, CEDR accredited mediators although non-CEDR mediators will also benefit.

Time:

The session will last for approximately 2.5 hours

(Timing TBC )

Cost:

  • Both parts: £525.00 – General Admission
  • One part only: £385.00 – General Admission

All bookings will receive the full Law for non-lawyers handbook

 

Law and Practice for Non-Lawyers – Part 2

Understanding Contract: Beginning to End

Part two of Law and Practice for non-lawyers will take place on Thursday 17th June.

Non-lawyer mediators have sometimes felt that their lack of legal training has put them at a disadvantage – this two-part programme (UK/Common Law specific) addresses this concern.

Participants will be equipped with understanding of the legal concepts commonly encountered in mediation. Beyond this technical knowledge, a level of competence will be developed to enable confident engagement in legal issues as they arise.

In this part of the programme participants will understand how a contract functions and how disputes of contract occur, as well as how a contract in a mediation (the settlement agreement) can end the dispute.

In this session participants will develop an understanding of:

  • The laws of contract and tort for mediators
  • What can go wrong in a contract to create a civil dispute?
  • What is an ADR Contract Clause?
  • Another look at the Mediation Settlement Agreement

A detailed handbook is provided for pre-reading and subsequent reference.
