This chapter examines the effectiveness of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) initiatives, particularly mediation initiatives, in non-family civil cases since the introduction of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 (CPR) to determine whether mediation is now an accepted aspect of the civil justice system in England and Wales. It also examines the processes which encourage court-connected, or court-referred mediation, since the CPR were enacted, and how such processes are integrated into existing practice to ensure an accessible and just legal system.
