Mediation & Concilation
Compromise & Mediation
Mediation and Conciliation are two methods of conflicts resolutions in which a third-party is involved. … Mediation and Conciliation refer to the dispute resolution process in which two or more parties attempt to reach an amicable agreement with the help of a third party.
Conciliation is an alternative out-of-court dispute resolution instrument. Like mediation, conciliation is a voluntary, flexible, confidential, and interest based process. The parties seek to reach an amicable dispute settlement with the assistance of the conciliator, who acts as a neutral third party.
Conciliation is similar to mediation but is normally used when there is a particular legal dispute, rather than more general problems. A conciliator will normally be there to encourage the two sides to come to an agreement between themselves, whereas a mediator will often suggest their own solution.
Types of Conciliation
• informal conciliation; where disputes are addressed between a client and lawyerover the phone, by email or in writing.
• formal conciliation (otherwise known as a ‘conciliation conference’); where a client and lawyer meet to discuss, and try to resolve the issue with the help of a conciliator in attendance.
What is the different of Mediation and Conciliation?
Unlike the conciliator who has an active role in the conciliation process (eg he can propose a solution to end the conflict), the mediator assists the parties throughout the mediation process to help them find a solution to their dispute by themselves. … The conciliation is free for the parties.
Mediation is a procedure in which the parties discuss their disputes with the assistance of a trained impartial third person(s) who assists them in reaching a settlement. … The parties will fashion the solution as the mediator moves through the process.
Mediation is when a neutral third party called a mediator works with each party in a lawsuit to reach a compromise before going to trial. The mediator helps the parties to reach a compromise. The mediator points out issues in the case or areas of weakness and benefits of settling.
