Strathclyde Law School’s Mediation Clinic marks 100th case
The Mediation Clinic at the University of Strathclyde’s Law School is celebrating the fact that it has now mediated over 100 cases since its launch in 2013.
The Mediation Clinic's Director, Charlie Irvine, attributed the scheme's success to the long hours of hard work put in by postgraduate students on the LLM in Mediation and Conflict Resolution, together with positive support from the Sheriff Principal, Sheriff Clerks and individual sheriffs. Mr Irvine described small claims mediation as "oiling the wheels of the justice system".
To mark their 100th case, Sheriff Anwar addressed staff, students, alumni and legal practitioners, explaining how she now encourages parties to discuss their claims with the in-court mediators, as the majority will settle.
The Mediation Clinic has just started a second project in Lanark Sheriff Court.
