ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION

ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION STADIUM SERVICES

Mediation is a structured yet relative informal process to resolve disputes in a more ideal manner whereby a trained, experienced mediator is equipped to address the behaviour of parties and identify the real issues driving disputes. The Government Gazette [07/02/2020] announced the amendment of rules regulating the conduct of proceedings of divisions of the High Court of South Africa. This effects the litigation landscape insofar as the new Rule 41(A) aims to address the workload of Courts by providing an alternative to litigation. Arbitration is commonly used; but it is an adjudicative process with typically one party being successful. Mediation can be dealt with earlier than the Courts may be able to, with the added advantage that it remains private, swift, and cost effective. Introducing The Centre for Mediation in Sport based at SuperSport Park Stadium in Gauteng, South Africa.
