Abstract [en]

This paper describes a judge´s role in court based conciliation and court based mediation. In Chapter 42, Section 17 of the Swedish Code of Judicial Procedure, a judge, before the parties have their main hearing can act as a mediator between the parties to settle the dispute. The judge should, according to the law, always try to make the parties come to an agreement before the main hearing. The judge can choose either to initiate a court based conciliation, a court based mediation or go directly to the main hearing. There are few rules governing how the judge is to act in these dispute resolutions and what role the judge should have in the sessions.

The first question describes questions surrounding when it is preferable to initiate court based conciliation and when to proceed to a court based mediation. The second section describes the judge´s role in court based conciliation and court based mediation. The third section described adresses the question if private conversations with the parties are good, or whether it is best to refrain from such sessions with regard to the judge´s impartiality.

Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen behandlar domarens roll i förlikning- och särskild medling. I dispositiva tvistemål regleras domarens möjlighet att verka för att parterna förliks i 42 kap. 17 § RB. Domaren kan välja att initiera förlikning- eller särskild medling eller avstå från detta och gå direkt till huvudförhandling. Det finns få regler på hur domaren ska agera i förliknings och medlingsförhandlingar och vilken roll denne ska spela i dessa.

Den första frågan behandlar när förlikning respektive särskild medling ska initieras. Den andra frågan behandlar domarens roll i förlikning och särskild medling.Den tredje frågan behandlar om domaren ska hålla enskilda samtal med parterna eller om det är bättre att avstå med hänsyn till att domarens opartiskhet kan ifrågasättas.
