Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has become central to the justice system. It has been cited as a ‘tool of active case management to be encouraged and facilitated by the courts’. Mediation is one of the most popular forms of ADR and the Society is continuing with its annual series of seminars to ensure that solicitors consider mediation as an option.
The last event in this series is indicated below:
Topic: Legal Issues affecting Mediation – Confidentiality, Enforceability of Agreements, Liability
Date: Friday 8th December 2017
The seminars will be delivered by Brian Speers, CMG Cunningham Dickey Solicitors. Brian is regarded as one of the most experienced solicitor mediators in Northern Ireland and has pioneered the use of mediation for the resolution of commercial disputes. He has lectured extensively in mediation both locally and internationally.
