Court Related Mediation Study

Maria Volpe, overseer of the NYC-DR listserv, posted this great information recently that I thought many of the readers would find interesting:

To all: since research on court-related mediation programs may be of interest to some on this listserv, I am sending the following bibliography of evaluations conducted from the mid-1980s through 2006.

Best, Maria

This bibliography brings together evaluations of court-related mediation programs that were conducted from the mid-1980s through 2006, with the addition of some earlier, seminal studies. The studies evaluate programs that cover a range of case types, including civil, family, small claims, victim-offender, workers’ compensation, bankruptcy, and appellate cases. The evaluations vary considerably in methodology: some look only at mediated cases; some compare mediated cases to cases that were not mediated; and some examine the impact of mediation on all cases, whether mediated or not.
