District Court of Western Australia

Court Mediation

Each year a small proportion of civil actions commenced in the District Court are finalised by the parties going to trial. While some actions are resolved through a party obtaining default judgment or summary judgment, most of the remainder are resolved by agreement between the parties.

The Court operates an alternate dispute resolution ("ADR") program to facilitate the parties to actions in the Court settling their actions as soon as practicable after commencement.
