The Law Council of Australia launched its Guidelines for Lawyers in Mediations at the Australian Legal Convention on 23 March 2007. The Guidelines for Lawyers in Mediation (Guidelines) are based on the work of the members of the Law Council Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee and were developed to provide assistance to lawyers representing clients in the mediation of civil disputes. It is not intended that the Guidelines derogate from the usual obligations imposed on lawyers by law or any ethical rules, professional conduct rules or standards.
