About the Programme
Singapore is seen to be an important service oriented economy with a strong commitment to excellence including in dispute resolution, both internationally and regionally through its domestic Courts as well as the Singapore International Commercial Court and is also seen to be a leader in alternative dispute resolution (ADR), particularly in arbitration through the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, Singapore Mediation Centre, Singapore International Mediation Centre, and Singapore International Mediation Institute.
With the growth of mediation in Singapore, the Law Society has in recent years introduced its own mediation scheme and other schemes such as the arbitration scheme and neutral evaluation and determination scheme to provide disputants with a full suite of ADR options. The schemes are competitively priced to ensure that individuals and SMEs are able to access good quality justice.
With mediation now being commonplace as a form of ADR in the Courts, with the enactment of the Mediation Act 2017 and also with the forthcoming signing of the UN Convention on International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation (Singapore Convention) in Singapore on 7 August 2019 (to make it easier for mediated settlement agreements to be enforced abroad in convention countries), all of which will increase the profile of mediation as a preferred mode of dispute resolution, both domestically and in cross-border contractual disputes. This demonstrates how the mediation landscape in Singapore has evolved and is continuing to evolve.
This seminar will benefit lawyers, mediators as well as consumers of mediation services including corporate counsel and commercial entities in knowing the benefits of mediation in Singapore, being a lower cost and expeditions form of ADR.
