Mediation is now an ADR method commonly employed across all sectors – from family disputes to commercial relationships and construction projects. Proponents of mediation often say that everything under the sun can be mediated. However, it may be hard to convince staunch arbitrators and litigators that a non-compulsory, non-binding, consensual process is indeed the best way to resolve certain disputes.
The debate will include three expert teams arguing for and against the proposition, with each team focusing on the benefits of a specific dispute resolution method–mediation, arbitration, or litigation.
The live debate will take place on Wednesday 31st August 2022 from 3:00 – 4:30pm SGT at Maxwell Chambers.
