Infusing Legal Capacity

It may well be that the safest and most beneficial process, both for the non-lawyer mediator and for mediation participants, is for the non-lawyer mediator to "infuse" their mediation process with true legal capacity. This can be done by the mediator or mediation center employing a co-mediational or advisory attorney to provide information with regard to the legal structuring of an agreement, to assist by impartially offering established "black letter" law and to give other mutually beneficial legal advice. Once mediation participants have decided upon the solutions for their situation, this co-mediational or advisory attorney can, as the participants desire, draft their settlement agreement in legal form.
