SC judge stresses on pre-litigation mediation

Sunday, 19th August 2019

"Justice Sharad Bobde of the Supreme Court emphasised the need for pre-litigation mediation and the role of the legal aid system to ensure people get speedy justice. He was speaking on Saturday at the inaugural function of the 17th All India Meet of State Legal Services Authorities in Nagpur.

Justice Bodbe said 1,07,587 matters were settled through mediation between April 2017 to March 2018, adding in Gujarat, recently, 24,000 cases were settled in a day.

“An emphasis is developing on mediation. Therefore, we are thin­k­ing of compulsory ‘pre litigation mediation’, which need not be restricted to only commercial disputes,” the SC judge said.

There should be degree, diploma courses in mediation in law universities in the country, he said, adding, legal aid provided to disadvantaged sections of society has helped them have their voices heard."
