Since the middle of last year, it has been part of the standard rules of practice in South Africa that a lawyer must first attempt mediation between parties before bringing a case to court – and yet this is not what has been happening in practice.
To explain why and talk about the role of mediation, Pippa is joined on the line Veeresh Shrikison who is a family later based in Gauteng and a trained mediator.
