Abstract: In Canada, Singapore and Australia, an array of Judicial Dispute Resolution programmes have been implemented in the last 10 years, allowing judges in those jurisdictions to act as mediators. Because the role of judges has traditionally been seen as adjudicative the practice of judicial mediation raises concerns of compatibility between the old and new roles of judges.The argument presented in the thesis is that judicial dispute resolution (JDR) has changed the traditional adjudicative role of judges, broadening it to include a more facilitative role. Such change should be recognised and welcomed as a positive addition to the court system and the legal services offered to the public.
