MIAMs in January to March 2020 up 13 per cent on a year ago

Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAMs) increased by 13 per cent in the last quarter compared to the previous year and currently stand at just over a third of pre-LASPO levels. Mediation starts increased by 1 per cent although outcomes increased by 16 per cent, and are now sitting at around half of pre-LASPO levels.

Mediation and MIAMs accounted for £2 million of the legal aid budget during January to March 2020, up 13 per cent on the figure for the same period the previous year.
