Improving our litigation system (31 January 2017)

Mary Banham-Hall, a family lawyer for thirty years, and a mediator for seventeen, has launched an online petition seeking to improve our litigation system.

She is campaigning to make litigation costs proportionate to the value of the case:

‘So here’s the plan. Once joint costs reach about 20% of case value, both clients must be referred to an accredited mediator to hear how mediation resolves disputes based on their shared interest in reaching an agreement and ending their litigation.’
