Mediation Benefits

by Robin Wheeler, TAPM Board Vice-Chair

If you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for interesting tidbits, whether in general or specific to your profession. That’s why I had to share a recent article from the New York Law Journal that caught my eye entitled “Five Indicators Mediation is at a Tipping Point.” In the article, the writers make compelling arguments for the acceptance of mediation and recognition of its benefits, not just in the US, but around the world. In a nutshell, they indicate that mediation helps courts decrease backlogs in a timely manner while empowering the parties to direct the outcome. It’s a quick and inspiring read! Enjoy the article, found at this link:

    Thanks, Robin! Mediation is, in some ways, an invisible process – we handle things quietly and privately. It’s good to see that it is getting more attention. The more we can speak about mediation’s role in access to justice, taking pressure off court dockets, empowerment, improving relationships, and all the many other benefits, we can educate the public as well as potential referral sources!!
