Delegation from the Indian High Court during CIArb’s mediation training

05 Jun 2019

This morning,  Anthony Abrahams (CIArb Director General),  Dr Paresh Kathrani (CIArb Director of Education and Training) and Neil Newman (CIArb Director of Communications and Membership) met with a delegation of ten advocates from Delhi High Court.

The Indian delegation is currently attending an over week-long mediation training developed by the CIArb's Education and Training Department. CIArb has been requested to deliver this training so that universally transferable skills used during mediation can be adopted in the Indian High Court. The training sessions are generously hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills LLP in London.

Lawyers and mediators from Delhi High Court attending the mediation training have also expressed interest in qualifying as CIArb Accredited Mediators. This process requires passing CIArb's Pathway in Mediation Module 1 Assessment and applying for CIArb membership.

Mediation has been shown to be an effective method for solving complex disputes. Negotiation, communication and management skills which are being developed during CIArb's mediation training are essential attributes not only of an effective mediator but can also benefit lawyers dealing with court cases.

Dr Paresh Kathrani (CIArb Director of Education and Training) commented:

‘CIArb is delighted to welcome delegates from Delhi to its Mediation Training in London. CIArb offers outstanding training in mediation, with those completing Module 1 of its Mediation Pathway, and applying for CIArb Membership (MCIArb), obtaining ‘Accredited Mediator’ status. It was a pleasure to meet the delegates during their training and hear about their experiences. CIArb looks forward to welcoming them as Members and Accredited Mediators and also wishes to thank Herbert Smith Freehills for hosting the training and delegation.’
