I recently attended an ISBA program on Mediation where Kimberly Atz, Court-Annexed Mediation Supervisor in the Circuit Court of Cook County, spoke about mediation statistics in Cook. She requested that everyone fill in the paperwork evaluating their mediator after a session so that we get a better idea of the success rate of the different mediators over a long time period. Apparently there is a binder somewhere in the building where attys can look up the success rates of mediators as compiled by the court. (Her number is (312) 793-0125 if anyone has the time to check where this binder is precisely.)

And since amended Rule 20 of CCCC (in effect April 2004) allows any contested civil case pending in the Law Division to go to mediation at the request of the judge or either party, I have a feeling mediation's popularity is only going to grow.
