Ranka Public Charitable Trust with Rajasthan Law Institute in collaboration with the Indian Mediation Week Jaipur Chapter-(PU) is organizing a one-day National Seminar on training and awareness on Mediation on Saturday, September 15, 2018.

About the Seminar

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution and is a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties. Apart from parties referring disputes to mediation voluntarily, under Section 89 of the Civil Procedure Code, 1908 where it appears to court that there exist elements of a settlement which may be acceptable to the parties, the court may refer parties to, inter alia, arbitration, conciliation or mediation.

In mediation, a third party (the mediator) assists the parties to negotiate their own settlement. In some cases, mediators may express a view on what might be fair or reasonable settlements, generally where all the parties agree that the mediator may do so.

The mediator then helps them to reach a conclusion based on their agreed upon terms. As it is voluntarily processed and the parties retain all the rights and powers, any party can withdraw from the process of mediation at any phase without stating any reason.

Mediation encourages the parties to participate in dispute resolution actively and directly whereby they explain the facts of their dispute, lay down options or ways to resolve the dispute and make a final decision by coming to a settlement.

The mediation process in India follows all the general rules of evidence and, examination and cross-examination of witness. To know all the legal rights you have over the issue, you can discuss with your ADR lawyer hoe you can put up your demands and negotiate it with the other party.

One of the primary benefits of mediation in India is that it is completely private methods of dispute resolution. Only the disputing parties and the mediator are involved, making the affairs of the parties personal and private. The mediator is an impartial and independent third party, who helps the parties in finding their own solution.

All statements made during the process of mediation in India cannot be disclosed in civil proceedings or any other place without the prior consent of all parties in writing.

The Seminar focuses on training and awareness programs for students and academicians to demonstrate how meditating skills and conflict resolution skills can be used to solve the cases where the settlement can be done and to enable legal literacy in the contemporary legal field by the ones excelling in the same.
