The wind of Alternative Dispute Resolution is picking up rapidly around the world. The voluntary mechanism of mutual dispute resolution has become a popular choice in both national and international domains. The Ten-day International Mediation Workshop will emphasize on versatility of Mediation as a process to effectively resolve a vast array of conflicts. The Law Commission of India has recognized mediation as the flagship of the ADR movement. Bar Council of India introduces Mediation with Conciliation as a compulsory subject to be taught in Law Schools. In mediation the emphasis is on the future, on cooperation and communication, on sustainable solutions, which are a win-win for all parties. It focuses on long-term interests, shows parties the weaknesses, not just the strengths of their case, and makes them examine their alternatives to a negotiated agreement. It gives the parties the freedom to suggest options for settlement.

The Indian legal setup is currently witnessing an encouraging development in the sphere of Alternative Dispute Resolution with experts from around the globe contributing pioneering work in strengthening the foundations of mediation and other ADR processes in the country.

Through this workshop, we aim to effectuate substantial exposure to all the attendees and to provide a platform where intricacies of the procedure can be understood and questions surrounding this process be answered. Across the period of ten days, our keynote speakers from different parts of the world will discuss the growing trend of mediation and its importance, both for the litigant/client and the counsel.
