Abstract

In this piece, the author examines the drafting of the Uniform Mediation Act in light of the eleven guiding principles endorsed by the organizations represented by the author. The author examines and analyzes numerous shortcomings in the wording of the Act. This piece will closely examine the difficulty mediators, courts, and consumers may encounter once the Act is put into practice. The piece also serves as a guide for state legislatures considering implementing the Uniform Mediation Act, in that the author identifies problems states may have and offers solutions for the predicted difficulties. Necessarily, however the piece also reveals the strong points of the Act and serves as a useful, insightful look into the proposal, drafting, and consequent implementation of a uniform statute.
