CIArb Podcast - Bringing mediation into the mainstream with Gill Mansfield FCIArb

10 Jul 2019

CIArb is delighted to present its podcast about meditation. Natalia Otlinger MCIArb interviewed Gill Mansfield FCIArb on the subject of the benefits of resolving commercial disputes via mediation, and initiatives undertaken in different jurisdictions to promote the wider use of this dispute resolution method. 

Gill is a qualified barrister with over 20 years of experience as a commercial lawyer. She has been practising as a commercial mediator for over a decade and is a member of the CIArb Presidential Panel of Mediators.

Gill explained the advantages of mediation over other dispute resolution methods and discussed how the outcomes that can be achieved through mediation are different from the outcomes in court proceedings.  She also talked about the role of the mediator in helping people in dispute reach workable settlements. 

Gill went on to share some insights on the on-going efforts to increase the use of mediation in various legal systems and the debate around mandatory mediation.

CIArb as a world leading organisation in training and professional qualifications, offers dispute avoidance and dispute management across a wide range of ADR techniques including, of course, mediation and is proud to promote its wider use. 

Gill Mansfield FCIArb commented:

"I really enjoyed recording the podcast with the CIArb.  Mediation is a subject that I am passionate about and I welcome the opportunity to let more people know about the undoubted benefits of mediation."

The podcast is available on Sound Cloud here and on YouTube here.

This is a second podcast from a series of podcasts which are currently being produced by  CIArb. The first podcast about diversity and careers in international arbitration recorded with Amanda Lee FCIArb is available here
