Beating a Path to your Door

Chris Oswald, Solicitor and Mediator. Mediation training is demanding and involves extensive use of role-plays. It offers an opportunity to provide a solution to clients, which is constructive and can, if successful, reduce the distress, and expense that the courts sometimes inflict. However, it can be difficult to ensure that there are a sufficient number of clients who are aware of the process and know enough about it. The purpose of this article is to assist the prospective mediator in building a highly successful mediation practice. There are alternatives, such as collaborative law, but even that involves the development of a new business and so many of the same principles would apply. The author says lawyers and mediators do not study business development seriously enough yet. See May [2006] Fam Law 393 for the full article.
