THE MEDIATION ACT 2017
This Act came into force from January 2018 and reinforces existing provisions recognising mediation in the Irish Courts. It places the obligation to consider mediation on a statutory footing and requires those involved in litigation to confirm to the Courts that they have considered mediation as means to resolving the dispute that they find themselves involved in.
There is now a statutory obligation on solicitors to advise clients to consider mediation.
- introduces an obligation on solicitors and barristers to advise parties to disputes to consider using mediation as a means of resolving them;
- provides that a court may, on its own initiative or on the initiative of the parties invite the parties to consider mediation as a means of resolving the dispute;
- contains general principles for the conduct of mediation by qualified mediators;
- provides that communications between parties during mediation shall be confidential;
- provides for the possible future establishment of a Mediation Council to oversee development of the sector;
- provides for the introduction of codes of practice for the conduct of mediation by qualified mediators.
