Basic civil procedure for mediators 2021

During civil proceedings, the litigating parties may refer disputes to mediation at any stage of the proceedings. If any issue remains in dispute after the mediation, the parties may proceed to litigation.

Mediation is now encouraged in South Africa and parties are required to declare that mediation was considered to resolve the dispute in order to comply with the Uniform Rules of Court. It is therefore important for mediators to have a good background knowledge of civil procedure and where mediation fits in, and how mediation works in relation to the other rules of procedure.
