This is a reflection about the ethical commitment conciliators have not only with justice, but with the society that has put its trust on them. Conciliators, in their labor, have a significant responsibility concerning the management of the juridical conflicts citizens put in their hands to count on their assistance in order to solve such conflicts. Keeping juridical bioethics in mind, conciliators must include the virtue of prudence (phrónesis) in their actions, aiming to maintain the necessary impartiality to propose agreement possibilities in conflicts. Professional attorneys, and particularly those who work as conciliators, require an ethical code based, particularly, on the virtue of prudence. Four issues will be, then, approached: first: Conciliators and the kinds of conciliation currently existing in the law; second: Virtues of the conciliators; third: Conflict and conciliation, and fourth: A reflection about the principles a bioethics code must have for conciliators.
