The third edition of Andrew Goodman's original and popular work on mediation advocacy is essential reading for practitioners both seeking to develop a specialisation in representing parties at mediation, and to add value to their existing practice. With forewords by the Rt Hon Lord Dyson MR and Irena Vanenkova, executive director of the International Mediation Institute, and with appendices covering relevant European legislation, the new SCMA Mediation Advocacy Standards and the IMI's own practical tools for mediator selection and case management, this work is both an authoritative guide and a practical skills manual for newcomers to this area and experienced advocates alike. It provides the clearest possible grounding in the skills and practice of mediation, and the role of the advocate throughout the mediation process. It is compendious in scope and thoroughly practical in its advice. It should be seen to be the pre-eminent guide to practitioners who wish to develop and hone the specialist skills required of effective mediation advocates. Rt Hon Lord Dyson MR, Foreword As the sector has developed, so this ground-breaking work has been expanded to cover recent authorities and new ideas and to take in the assistance practitioners can obtain from such organisations as SCMA, AMATI and IMI who have endorsed the work.
