Commonwealth Lawyers’ Association (Cla) Belfast Mediation Conference May 2014

 

Members are being given advanced notice of an important Mediation Conference being organised by the Commonwealth Lawyers Association in conjunction with the Law Society of Northern Ireland, the DRS and the University of Ulster. 

The Mediation Conference will take place on:

Thursday 8th and Friday 9th May 2014

Conor Lecture Theatre,

University of Ulster,

Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Demand for places is expected to be high both at a local level and from international delegates wishing to attend. Therefore you are encouraged to book your place NOW.

The cost of the conference is £250.00.  

The Conference will provide 8 hours mediation related CPD.  

A highly impressive programme has been organised for the two day conference with international speakers. You can download the prelimenary programme below:  Please click here to download the draft programme for the conference.

Of particular interest are the Key Note addresses from Lord Dyson, Master of the Rolls and Lord Kerr of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.  

Lord Dyson will deliver an important re appraisal of the Halsey case in which he delivered the lead Judgement almost exactly 10 years to the day before the CLA Belfast Mediation Conference.  

Lord Kerr will consider whether the encouragement to mediation compromises the rights of parties.

Also of especial interest will be the contributions from Professor Laurence Boulle - author of many leading publications about mediation, dealing with principles and practice and policy across the world.  It is a real honour to have Professor Boulle attend this Conference.

The contributions from other practitioners both local and international will further enhance the Conference as will the address from Minister of Justice David Ford.
