Looking ahead, this event will discuss the education and training needs of future ADR practitioners, particularly in terms of the (i) new, smaller, flatter and faster global dispute resolution landscape in which we find ourselves, (ii) the growth of new technologies and (iii) how legal frameworks are likely to adapt to these. It will discuss the career prospects for ADR practitioners, future emerging legal skills and new forms of learning, and how academic institutions and professional associations will have to respond or have already responded to these changes.
Cost(s): Attendance to this event is free of charge, but pre-registration is required.
