What is Conciliation?
Conciliation is a court dispute resolution process for you and the other party in your case to resolve your dispute without going for a trial in Court. It allows you and the other party to seek guidance from the Judge during the conciliation session and tap on his experience and knowledge to come up with an optimal settlement for all of you.
Who conducts the Conciliation?
Conciliation is conducted by a Judge of the State Courts Centre for Dispute Resolution.
What takes place during Conciliation?
During a conciliation session, the Judge will assist you and the other party in your negotiations. He will provide suggestions, develop suitable proposals and direct you and the other party towards a mutually acceptable settlement. You will then make decisions about the proposals put forth by the Judge.
Do I have to be present at Conciliation?
You and the other party have to attend the conciliation in person. Your respective lawyers should also be present.
If you are a corporation or an entity, you should appoint a representative who has the authority to settle the case to attend the conciliation. If only a board or body has the authority to settle the dispute on behalf of your entity, you should send the person who has the most knowledge about the case and has full authority to attend the conciliation to settle the case
Why should I attend Conciliation?
Conciliation provides an avenue for you and the other party in your case to resolve your dispute without going for a trial in Court.
