Get recognition for your excellence
The Civil and Commercial Mediation Accreditation Scheme covers mediations arising from all types of civil and commercial disputes. While scheme members may have expertise in certain kinds of civil and commercial disputes, it is expected that they are able to demonstrate awareness and knowledge of general dispute resolution and mediation skills and issues.
The aim of the scheme is to provide quality service in the delivery of civil and commercial mediation for the benefit of the public and the profession, ensuring that the public and the profession are easily able to identify solicitors and Fellows of the Institute of Executives (FILEX) who are accredited by the Law Society.
Further details can be found in our Civil and Commercial Mediation Accreditation Scheme Guidance (PDF 151kb).
All members also agree to follow the Law Society Code of Practice for Civil and Commercial Mediation (PDF 120kb).
