Our lawyers were welcomed on behalf of the Court’s of Appeal Divisions by Mrs. Isabella Mariani who made an extremely interesting presentation about the legal system in Italy, about the duration of lawsuits, the problems lawyers and clients have to face, especially the lack of judges compared to the high number of court cases.
The lawyers were also familiarized with the alternative dispute resolution procedures, namely about mediation according to Italian laws. Mr. Pietro Beretta Anguissola – representing the Mediation Body of Florence, conducted an interactive session regarding mediation. He talked about its importance in the Italian legal system – where mediation has become mandatory for certain types of disputes also as an attempt to reduce the number of cases that need to be solved by a judge.
