Mediation organised by the Judicial Code

On this page

    The mediation set out in Articles 1724 to 1737 of the Judicial Code is a voluntary consultation process between parties who have a dispute, with the assistance of an independent and impartial mediator chosen by the parties. Its aim is to find an agreement acceptable to all the parties.

    It can take place outside legal proceedings or be ordered by a judge, with the agreement of the parties.

    Mediation can be organised for the resolution of relationship problems at work.

    It has the advantage of being faster and cheaper than legal proceedings and, unlike these proceedings, leads to an agreement that satisfies the interests of all parties. The mediation agreement can be approved by a judge.
