Pathway in Mediation

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) where a third party is appointed to help the parties involved in the dispute come to a mutually acceptable agreement.

Undertaking this Pathway does not require a law background and will benefit all who wish to gain an understanding of mediation.

Our Pathway

Mediation is an important and highly appreciated form of ADR. It is an informal and private process where disputes are resolved by an independent and impartial mediator. The process of mediation is a fast, flexible, and less expensive alternative to litigation.
