In the modern legal system of the Republic of Kazakhstan development of the mechanism for reconciliation was worked out. The President of the Republic of Kazakhstan has repeatedly pointed out the need to implement progressive world experience of extrajudicial reconciliation. This is the idea of various forms of mediation introduction in the settlement of disputes enshrined in the Concept of Legal Policy of the Republic of Kazakhstan for the period from 2010 to 2020. At the same time there is the Law "On Mediation" of the year 2011 in the Republic of Kazakhstan, which has to create legal basis for the broad and civilized use of this procedure and to reduce the increasing burden on the courts. The analysis showed that the adoption of the Law "On Mediation" has not led to a decrease load on the courts; mediation is not widespread among the population and underdeveloped. It was also noted in the article, that in 2013, for example, the courts completed only 3% of civil cases by settlement. Authors conclude that for the serious crimes, firstly committed and not connected with the death or grievous bodily harm could be settled not only between minors, but also among other socially vulnerable people - pregnant women, mothers with dependent minor children, senior citizens. Authors note that the range of methods of conciliation is large enough. It develops, including all new mechanisms into the category of the means by which it is possible to resolve any conflict without recourse to the state Justice. Consequently, the expansion of pre-trial settlement of disputes, the introduction of a simplified form of consideration of claims would contribute to the further development of fast and affordable justice.
