How could Judges use mediation to improve access to justice in South Africa?

Recently in South Africa there have been tentative attempts in rules of court and government regulations to encourage parties to use mediation prior to litigating. These attempts are welcome and have become even more necessary because of the COVID 19 pandemic which has made easy, quick, and inexpensive access to justice even more difficult than it was in ‘normal’ times. The purpose of this blog is to suggest some ways in which Judges can best encourage mediation and ensure that parties receive quality mediation when they do agree to use it.

My Experience of Online Learning

We hear a lot about the advantages of online learning in the higher educational setting during the current COVID-19 pandemic, but there are also ways in which online learning can be used for training and development in business and similar organizations. I recently attended the Conflict Dynamics mediator skills training online.

Testimonials

I just want to thank you once again for the way you guys opened my eyes to an entirely different way of approaching things. Although I've not conducted any mediations since I completed your course, I have found myself in the position that I've been requested to advise a few others who have been involved in conflicts of one kind or another. Inevitably this advice has come down to the simple principles of what you taught me. While acknowledging the merit and appropriateness of other processes in the resolution of disputes, everything having its time and place, I declare myself to be a huge fan of mediation and the benefits it can bring to those who adopt it with an open heart and open mind.
