Check-ins about mediating - What are your thoughts?

Should arbitrators build into a preliminary hearing order (and raised at conference) various check-ins with the administrator to take the temperature of parties willingness to mediate? One point might be after discovery deadlines (or a significant deposition), another could be after the evidentiary hearing but before an award is issued.

An order can build in at least two check-in phone calls with the administrator about the parties openness to pursue mediation. The administrator speaks to each party individually. If only one party wants to mediate than the administrator simply advises all parties that an avenue for mediation will not go forward.

Please provide your thoughts/comments below.

Thank you to Harold Coleman of AAA Mediation.org for this week's question.
