Abstract

Complex tensions that can occur during negotiations and decision-making are illustrated in the Supreme Court of Victoria decision in the case of Taphoohi v Lewenberg. Cases such as this place judges in the position of making decisions about 'proper mediator behaviour' and of making major policy decisions about professional diversity and standards.
