Event description
The 13th Mediation Symposium is a CIArb flagship event and will be delivered online on 7 December 2020, from 9.35am Greenwich Mean Time.

About this Event

This year's Mediation Symposium will focus on the theme of ‘multidisciplinarity'.

Mediation is a valuable form of dispute resolution. The mediator plays a crucial role in enabling the parties to understand the issues that separate them with a view to coming to a settlement. Consequently, the mediator needs to have discrete intellectual and professional skills in order to facilitate a mediation. As complexity increases and the nature of disputes evolve, one question that arises is what disciplines may support the work of a mediator. Might an increased awareness of law, psychology or sociology enable the mediator to enrich the mediation, or indeed should mediators practice in specialist themes and the discipline be combined with other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) areas such as arbitration.

The day will draw together presentations, deliberations and debates around ‘multidisciplinarity’ and the skills and practice of mediation. Although targeted at practitioners, this flagship event will also be of interest to academics, lawyers, politicians and the judiciary as well as business leaders with an interest in the developing world of mediation.

Please note that places for this symposium are limited. If you registered for a place and can no longer participate, please kindly let us know so we can offer it to another colleague.

During registration, please specify which workshop you'd like to attend in the morning and afternoon sessions and we will try our best to allocate you to this group. Alternatively, random allocation will be done - based on the number of attendees - on the day of the event.
