Date: Wednesday, 17 Nov 2021, 18:00 - 19:30 Location: Internet Webinar Member cost: £0 (including VAT) Non-member cost: £0 (including VAT)

In its recent 'Call for Evidence on Dispute Resolution in England and Wales' the MOJ expressed its ambition to mainstream non-adversarial dispute resolution mechanisms, so that resolving disagreements, proactively and constructively, becomes the norm. As a representative of many dispute resolution practitioners, and one of the foremost organisations involved in alternative dispute resolution, the CIArb will, of course, put in its evidence. This seminar will explore CIArb’s position, the approach in other jurisdictions and the impact on, and future for, dispute resolution practitioners. We are pleased to announce an eminent line up speakers as follows:

  1. Catherine Dixon, Director General, CIArb – a background to the CIArb, its aims and position on the MOJ Call for Evidence.
  2. Dr Isabel Philips, Head of Mediation Development, CIArb – an international perspective on non-adversarial dispute resolution and the lessons which can be learned.
  3. Jane Gunn, FCIArb, FRSA, FPSA, CEDR accredited, CMC registered and IMI Certified International Mediator, Deputy President of CIArb (President 2022) – a practitioner’s perspective on mediation and the consequences of compulsory alternative dispute resolution.

A Q&A session will follow for approximately 30 minutes after speeches.

The panel will be moderated by Ishfaq Ahmed, barrister at 36 Stone and St Philips Chambers
