Supreme Court of Tasmania


Mediation

In May 2000 the new Supreme Court Rules adopted mediation as part of the civil litigation process. Under the Supreme Court Rules Part 20, a judge is able to direct parties to attend a mediation. Parties may also voluntarily participate in mediation.

Mediation conferences are conducted by:

  • Jim Connolly, Registrar
  • Robert Walker, Deputy Registrar
  • Brendan McManus, Assistant Deputy Registrar
  • Chris Nason, District Registrar
  • Ian Ritchard, private mediator
  • Geoff Pickard, private mediator

All mediators regularly travel to district registries in other regions of the State to ensure that each Court Registry has mediation services available.

There is a fee (currently $500) for each Conference, usually shared equally between the parties.

Scheduled mediation conference dates, and all booking requested should be made by telephone or emailing the Court.
