Guidelines for Lawyers in Mediations
16 May 2019
The Law Council of Australia has developed these guidelines to give assistance to lawyers representing clients in the mediation of civil and commercial disputes. It is not intended that the guidelines derogate in any way from the usual obligations imposed on lawyers by law or any ethical rules, professional conduct rules or standards. It is expected that the guidelines will be reviewed from time to time.
These guidelines are based on the work of the members of the Law Council of Australia Expert Standing Committee on Alternative Dispute Resolution.
