Mediation and the law

“The entire legal profession – lawyers, judges, law teachers – has become so mesmerized with the stimulation of the courtroom contest that we tend to forget that we ought to be healers of conflict. For many claims, trial by adversarial contest must, in time, go the way of the ancient trial by battle and blood. Our system is too painful, too destructive, and too ineffective for a truly civilized people.” – Warren E. Burger, 15th Chief Justice of the United States of America.
