The conference will examine both domestic and international dispute resolution, with a focus on identifying any common themes, or lessons to be learned from other jurisdictions. The conference will count for six hours of CPD. Lunch will be provided. You will be invited to attend a canapé and drinks reception after the conference closes.
The day will include:
Domestic and international trends in different forms of dispute resolution, including litigation, arbitration, adjudication, mediation, and dispute avoidance
Four separate breakout sessions exploring the use of DR and arbitration in traditional areas, including construction and property; in emerging areas such as family law and in aspirational areas, such as personal injury
A cross fertilisation of ideas between different practice areas to examine the future of dispute resolution. The afternoon session will be interactive, and will consider how we might best shape effective dispute resolution both domestically and internationally
