About Association

Welcome to the website of the most independent and creative professional association - the Mediators Association of Georgia! 

Since January 1st 2020, the Law of Georgia on Mediation has come into force. This constitutes unprecedented reformation in the recent years of Georgia. The enactment of the law gives us the opportunities that even we have not fully comprehended and enables us to achieve what was previously impossible. These include: 

  • We can be the ones who resolve our own court disputes!
  • We can resolve our own disputes without going to the court - by referring it to mediation!
  • Our mediated settlement is subject to mandatory affirmation by the court, thus we can take justice into our own hands!
  • All of these require minimal time and significantly less cost compared to any other dispute resolution method.


The Mediators Association of Georgia is an independent professional association!
