With thanks to Timothy Bowen for pointing out that the NSW Law Reform Commission Consultation Paper 18 was released on 15 December 2016.
It provides a set of draft model provisions related to mediation and some options for implementation including the possibility of applying them to non-statutory mediation.
The model provisions address various issues including:
- Definitions of accredited mediator and mediation
- Confidentiality and admissibility of mediation communications in evidence
- Mediator’s immunity
- Termination of mediation
