Updated with Churchill, the Singapore Convention 2019, the impact of Brexit and the pandemic and other important developments in mind, this fourth edition of Andrew Goodman's original work on mediation advocacy remains essential reading. Practitioners already representing parties at mediation will want their updated bible. For those seeking to add value to their existing practice, the book will be invaluable.

With forewords by the Rt Hon Lord Dyson and Irena Vanenkova, former executive director of the International Mediation Institute, and with appendices covering standard form mediation agreements, the SCMA Mediation Advocacy Standards and Competencies 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, 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 and IMI who have endorsed the work.
