16 Dec 2019

2019 has been a breakout year for podcasts changing part of the legal media landscape. Podcasts introduces us to new ideas with the freedom to explore topics in more depth or briefly on the go. Here at CIArb, spreading knowledge and awareness about important issues in the ADR community lies at the heart of what we do. This year we started looking for new, modern means of delivering our message and providing our members with interesting content in an original and more accessible form. 

As a global organisation with over 16,000 members in 133 countries, we want to reach our global audience and create an audio platform that can be used to inform and inspire existing members, and to reach out to future customers - creating an engagement tool that has more longevity. In June 2019, CIArb decided to make use of the available technology and produce something which both members and non-members with interest in conflict avoidance and dispute management and resolution can listen to, whenever suitable for them. 

Details of the topics and guests on our first four podcasts can be found below:

Diversity in ADR with Amanda Lee FCIArb  - Amanda Lee FCIArb discusses the subject of diversity in alternative dispute resolution. Mandy shares her insights into the origins, scale and potential solutions to the problem.

Bringing mediation into the mainstream with Gill Mansfield FCIArb - Gill Mansfield FCIArb discusses how and why mediation works, and international moves to bring mediation into the mainstream. 

Cybersecurity in International Arbitration with Claire Morel de Westgaver - Claire Morel de Westgaver discusses the most common cyber-security threats and explains why international arbitration is an attractive target for hackers. She also shares statistics which confirm the importance of cyber-security and gives a few examples of arbitrations which were the subject of a data breach. Claire also explains the risks associated with security breaches and shares her views on who should take on the responsibility to tackle the issue of cyber-security.

Predictive Coding in International Arbitration with Paul Kinninmont FCIArb - Paul Kinninmont FCIArb shares his experience of using predictive coding in the international arbitration document production process and explains how this technology works in practice. In his podcast, Paul forecasts that predictive coding and related technologies will become more prevalent in international arbitration practice going forward.

Both fascinating and educational, our collection of podcasts will continue in 2020 to build a genuine connection with our audience with new series to cover a wide range of topics in ADR.
