Module 4 deals with the questions: How is the law introduced in mediation? What does “right” mean? What does “justice” mean? After we were able to internalize the process of mediation in the last modules and learned methods that we can use within mediation, a new dimension was added today: the law. Especially in conflicts outside the company, the question of what the mediators are legally entitled to can be central to assessing the results of the mediation. When and how is the law introduced? The questions in the fourth module were taken up in interesting discussions. Case studies were used to try out what options are available and what influence the right has to mediation. The difference in questions of law and justice became clear. Thanks to Dietmar App, lawyer and mediator, and Andrea Hartmann-Piraudeau, who assisted us as experts.
