In case you didn’t know, this week (9th-13th November) is International Mediation Awareness Week, which is using the hashtag #IMAW20 .
The focus of the week is “Mediating In An Uncertain World”. Mediation, of course, is all about trying to find amicable agreement. Probably the one thing we can all agree on is that the world does seem very uncertain right now.
There are a range of free events, including mock mediations, webinars, and lecture, involving some excellent speakers and presenters. If you are interested, the IMAW website has more details. You will find it at https://imaw.org/?mc_cid=eace5b88f4&mc_eid=f5dda17737
You will also find an excellent blog by Ross Mitchell of law firm Brodies, entitled “A good mediation is better than a good lawsuit” here: https://imaw.org/?mc_cid=eace5b88f4&mc_eid=f5dda17737 . It’s well worth a read.
