Judges’ quotes

“Mediation has a vital role to play in reducing the costs of civil disputes by formenting the early settlement of cases.”

– Jackson Report 2010, Review of Civil Litigation Costs

“Mediation is better able to achieve a just or fair outcome for the parties, provided that both have the will to settle their differences. Fairer not because the outcome necessarily reflects the substantive legal merits of the underlying dispute but rather because the parties have both participated in a consensual process and reached a mutually agreeable resolution.”

– Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury, Master of the Rolls
