Abstract

In this article, the author examines an accumulating tide of will to embed early dispute resolution in civil courts in Scotland and sets it in the context of research evidence, procedural reforms and philosophies of justice. The article considers whether championing mediation in the present environment can hope to engage those actors in civil justice whose support for it will be necessary.
