Mr Justice Paul Gilligan to Chair Mediation in the Civil Justice System, 28 March 2019

Join us for this afternoon conference hosted by the ADR Committee, CEDR and GEMME in collaboration with Law Society Professional Training.

The seminar will be of interest to litigators and those with an interest in alternative dispute resolution. It will look at how the Act has integrated the mediation process into the civil justice system, and whether the legislation marks a step change in litigation practice. An interactive panel discussion will facilitate Members’ questions on the operation of the Act and issues arising in practice. Key note speakers from CEDR and from the in-house and public sectors will share their experiences on the use of mediation and consider whether the availability of good mediation practice is an important factor for those planning to locate and invest here. In addition, representatives from CEDR will share the results of the latest edition of its Mediation Audit. The seminar will also consider the possible impact of Brexit on mediation and ADR practice.
