Ethical duties owed by lawyer mediators: Suggestions for improving the NMAS practice standards

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Lawyer mediators who are accredited under Australia's National Mediator Accreditation System (NMAS) are obliged to comply with the rules of conduct of the legal profession and other components of the "law of lawyering", as well as with the Practice Standards issued in connection with the NMAS. This article amalgamates the two regulatory systems to which lawyer mediators are subject to identify and analyse the ethical duties owed by lawyer mediators. In addition, it aims to suggest ways in which to improve the NMAS Practice Standards, which have become, arguably, the single most important regulatory instrument for mediators in Australia.
