Mediation and Judicial Review
An Empirical Research Study
The aim of this research is to establish an independent evidence base for identifying the value and the limits of mediation as an alternative to, or used alongside, judicial review. It has been devised in response to claims made by government and mediation providers that mediation can lead to savings in costs as well as in court time, and provide remedies and solutions to disputes that cannot be offered by the court. These claims will be considered in the specifi c context of judicial review, which not only has an important constitutional function, but, compared to other forms of civil litigation, offers flexibility, low costs and speed.
