  • Introduction

    As mediation becomes the go-to option for resolving disputes and restoring relationships, dispute resolution practitioners must equip themselves with the relevant craft to represent their clients in a mediation. Counsel must be able to advise and advocate for their clients in a mediation just as effectively as they would in other forums for dispute resolution.

    Mediation advocacy is different from the traditional methods of advocacy and involves a significant change in thinking, approach and skills. This programme facilitates the necessary paradigm shifts and imparts the requisite strategies and skills for effective mediation advocacy across a range of disputes – especially those that arise in an international, cross-border setting.
