Abstract

‚ÄčIn this article, Press identifies some of the positive and negative impacts of institutionalization on mediation by reviewing some of the intended and unintended consequences of Florida's court-connected mediation experience. While institutionalization has had many positive impacts, there also are potential reasons for concern.

In this article, the author provides an overview of the historical development of mediation in Florida, describes the current status of mediation within the Florida court system, and details some of the positive and negative consequences of the institutionalization of mediation drawn from the Florida experience. The article concludes with initial reflections on what this means for the future of mediation.
