From the Centre for Dispute Resolution at SMU:
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 2nd Singapore Mediation Lecture.
The Singapore Mediation Lecture series aims to enhance the understanding and use of mediation in resolving cross-border commercial disputes.
Our distinguished speaker, The Right Honourable the Lord Woolf will speak on “Mediation: The Way Forward.”
Lord Woolf has been at the forefront of the development and mainstream acceptance of mediation as the preferred way to deal with disputes. His name is particularly associated with the promotion of access to justice, not only through the improvement of access to conventional legal services, but also through encouraging the pursuit of alternatives to litigation.
Lord Woolf’s lecture will deal with why mediation is the way forward, and the factors that have been holding it back. In particular, the lecture will deal with training and standards of mediators, and the role of lawyers as gatekeepers of dispute resolution processes. It will also touch on compulsory mediation, med-arb, and role of mediation from the perspective of the client. Lord Woolf will also consider the prospects for the further development of mediation in Singapore and the neighbouring region.
The Singapore Mediation Lecture is proudly brought to you by Harry Elias Partnership LLP and Singapore Mediation Centre, in collaboration with the Singapore Management University.
