Therefore, while we briefly discuss the expected improvements to the mediation process following the enactment of the Uniform Mediation Act, we want to put aside the reality that mediation can work in some situations and instead focus on identifying and overcoming various impediments to a successful mediation. Specifically, we want to address two points: (1) the importance of defining realistic objectives for the process, and (2) the importance of staying focused on obtaining those objectives.
