MIAMs increased by 4 per cent in last quarter of 2018

Flattening in the trend of declining mediations and MIAMs

Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAMs) increased by 4 per cent in the last quarter of 2018 compared to the previous year and currently stand at just over a third of pre-LASPO levels. During October to December 2019, mediation starts increased by 6 per cent, and outcomes increased by 5 per cent and are now sitting at around half of pre-LASPO levels. These figures compare against a particularly low October to December quarter in 2017 and in context is an overall flattening of the trend.

The figures are revealed by the Ministry of Justice release of legal aid statistics for October to December 2019. For the release, click here.
