Product description

Publisher: LexisNexis Malaysia

This book encompasses the law and practice of mediation in Malaysia. It covers a wide range of subjectmatters such as civil, criminal, commercial, matrimonial, labour, negligence claims and land disputes. It is a concerted effort by the main authors, together with several contributors, both academic and professional, to highlight and discuss current issues affecting the law and practice of mediation. The content in the 32 chapters reflects the expertise of the authors and contributors in their respective fields. The underlying argument of the articles is that Alternative Dispute Resolution is the best and most expeditious form of resolving disputes. Although this book acknowledges that mediation has been employed in many areas; it nevertheless explores the relevance, options and future possibilities for amicable settlement in a broad range of sectors. Comparisons are made with the success rate of mediation in various countries. This is a testament thatmediation should be embraced to simplify dispute resolution and reduce the delay, expense and backlog of cases pending in the Malaysian courts.

The release of this publication is timely as it coincides with the introduction of Practice Direction No 5 of 2010, which paves the way for court-annexedmediation. The collection of law, principles, practices and procedures offers an insight to the amount of research involved in producing this publication. This book will serve as a useful source of reference for all concerned parties, particularly judges, lawyers,ministry officials,mediation practitioners, non-government organisations, academics, students and the general public.
