Community Law & Mediation:
Community Law & Mediation (CLM) is a community based, independent law centre providing services nationwide and operating in two locations: Dublin and Limerick. It was founded in 1975 and assists more than 4,000 people annually through its services, which include free legal advice and representation; information and education; and mediation and conflict coaching. CLM also campaigns for law reform, and for the safeguarding of rights already enshrined in law.

CLM’s Mediation Service was established in 2004 to address the need in the community for an alternative dispute resolution process to the legal system, which can be expensive, protracted, and difficult to access.  Mediation is particularly valuable in situations where relationships matter e.g., in the neighbourhood, family and workplace.  CLM’s Mediation Service is provided by 53 volunteer mediators, all accredited with the Mediators’ Institute of Ireland (MII), with CLM providing administration, governance and training support.
