Nominations Sought For Court Ordered Mediation Pilot

The pilot will commence on November 1 this year and will enable the equivalent of 50 one day-long mediations to be carried out. The Ministry of Justice will pay mediators at the rate of $1500 plus GST for half-day mediations and $3000 plus GST for whole day mediations.

3. Experience in litigation and/or arbitration generally;

4. Operate at a senior or intermediate level of legal practice.
