An excellent resource on mediation is "The Mediator Magazine" which is edited by Matthew Rushton.
This month in Craving Collapse the magazine asks what the anticipated downturn might mean for mediation generally, and whether mediators, like litigators, can look forward to an upsurge in work.
Elsewhere conisderation is given of IMI's global standards commission; details of David Shapiro's departure from SJ Berwin; and news of the launch of an organisation for mediation advocates.
They meet mediator Amanda Bucklow as she returns to the UK following a World Bank appointment to mediate a US$5bn dispute in Fiji. And following last month's poll, they sound out three leading non-lawyer mediators on whether lawyers really do have an advantage as mediators. (See Is Law-Law better than War-War?.)
In My Toughest Mediation this month, Jane Andrewartha writes about handling multi-party disputes where interests and principles are in conflict.
Great resource. Worthy of support.
