In a significant step towards making dispute resolution more accessible, the UK government's justice reform has mandated automatic referrals to free telephone mediation sessions for over 180,000 parties before their cases can progress to a hearing.
This reform is not just about reducing pressure on the court system. It's about ensuring justice is within everyone's reach, irrespective of their financial situation.
In a world where justice can often seem out of reach, free mediation sessions ensure that every voice is heard, every perspective acknowledged
