Effective Mediation in Ireland – What all good litigators need to know - 22 April

The Litigation and ADR Committees in partnership with Law Society Professional Training will host an online session on 22 April, 2021 to explore how mediation is evolving to meet Irish clients' changing needs (including during COVID) and will focus on emerging trends and developments, exploring what solicitors need to know so as to best serve their clients' interests.


Mediation has been used in Ireland for many years, supported both by the judiciary and by the Oireachtas, most recently by the Mediation Act 2017. The event panel will consider whether the Mediation Act 2017 has achieved its aim and the scope for further reform. It will explore practical strategic issues - the optimum timing of mediation, the choice of mediator, overcoming obstacles to mediation and will highlight tools available (the Law Society's mediation precedents) to help solicitors engage in or advise on mediation. 
Panelists will include Liam Kennedy SC (A&L Goodbody, former Chair Litigation Committee) will chair a panel of experienced litigators and mediators including Michael Peart (former Judge of the Court of Appeal),  Helen Kilroy (Partner, McCann Fitzgerald), Alison Kelleher (Partner, Comyn Kelleher Tobin, Chair ADR Committee), William Aylmer, (Former Chair ADR Committee, Consultant, Compton Solicitors) and Lisa Broderick, (Partner, DAC Beechcroft).
If you have any questions, or concerns about attending an online event, please do not hesitate to get in touch. A member of the Professional Training team will be glad to help.
