Mediation

Mediation is an alternative to having your case heard in court. It can be quicker, less stressful and cheaper than a court hearing. The intention of mediation is that both sides should be able to come to an agreement to settle the case or resolve an issue rather than become embroiled in lengthy, intimidating, hostile and expensive court proceedings.

Applying for mediation

Legal Aid is available for mediation and this should be considered when the application is submitted to the Legal Aid Office.

Either party can apply to the court for mediation. In your application you should state:

  • The name and address of the person you wish to be mediator, however please note that both parties must agree to that person being the mediator
  • The date on which the mediation will take place
  • The documents each party wants to be given to the mediator
  • Any application for mediation must be made with the written consent of both parties
  • Further information with regards to mediation can be found on the IoM Courts of Justice website.

Below is the current list of Mediators approved by the Legal Aid Certifying Officer to undertake mediation work when instructed by an Advocate by virtue of Section 1(3) of the Legal Aid Act 1986 and Regulation 13A of the Legal Aid (General) Regulations 1997 (as amended).

The Mediator list should be read in conjunction with the list of Court approved mediators which can be viewed on the IoM Courts of Justice website and is maintained independently of this list.

Inclusion on either list does not absolve the instructing advocate of overall professional responsibility for the efficient management and progression of the matter. The ultimate aim of mediation is to arrive at or give effect to a compromise to avoid or bring an end to any proceedings - see section 2(3) of the Legal Aid Act 1986.
