On 29th April 2019, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for ADR (to which CIArb is Secretariat) will be hosting an evidence session entitled “London’s Future as an International Dispute Resolution Centre”.
This session will involve MPs questioning experts to learn how ADR can facilitate international trade, what makes the UK a leading international dispute resolution hub and what the future holds for the UK’s global status in the field.
Specifically, the APPG will be exploring:
Jonathan Wood (Head of International Arbitration at RPC, CIArb Chair of the Board of Trustees)
Lucy Greenwood (independent arbitrator and CIArb Trustee)
Jordan Cummins (CBI Senior Associate Director—London Policy)
Audley Sheppard QC (Partner at Clifford Chance; Chair of the Board of the LCIA)
Confirmed MPs include John Howell, Christina Rees, Bob Neill, John Spellar and Alberto Costa.
The session will be held on Monday 29th April (15.00-17.00) in The Thatcher Room, Portcullis House. (For directions, please visit the Parliament visitor page. Visitors should allow at least 30 minutes to get through security at the Portcullis House entrance). Please note this is a change of venue from that originally advertised.
CIArb Members interested in the session are welcome to join as audience members. To reserve your place in the audience, please RSVP by contacting Robin Hayden at email@example.com. A full briefing and security instructions will be provided at a later date.

In a significant moment for mediation, the highly anticipated Churchill judgment overturns the decision in Halsey, confirming it is not a breach of human rights to integrate mediation into the court process and, where appropriate, to order parties to mediate. CMC, Ciarb and CEDR joined forces to intervene in the case, arguing strongly for this outcome.
