The article examines the mediator's civil liability for damages resulting out of the conducted mediation procedure. The current national legislation does not directly regulate the mediator's liability in such cases, which raises a question about the circumstances that trigger such responsibility. The rare references of the trial cases to the techniques of Amicable Dispute Resolution also do not put forth this issue before the national courts and, hence, there is no case law on this matter. All this justifies the need for added research on the topic to outline theoretically the circumstances which may prompt the mediator's liability and to suggest a further regulation.
