    Abstract

    There is growing interest in the use of mediation to resolve disputes in family matters. Proponents of family mediation contend that this form of dispute resolution has many benefits for the parties, but in this article Fiona Raitt argues that indiscriminate use of mediation is inappropriate and the for cases involving domestic violence and other types of abuse, it is ethically unsound.
