About the Programme
Along with the rest of the world, dispute resolution practitioners have had to quickly adapt to working in a different way as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Having had to conduct arbitrations and mediations in virtual settings for over a year now, many practitioners agree that virtual hearings have offered a number of benefits over in-person hearing sessions.
As the world moves to a post-COVID new normal, coupled with movements such as the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations in a concerted effort to combat climate change and reduce the carbon footprint of dispute resolution practitioners, the popular view is that virtual hearings are here to stay, even when COVID-related restrictions are eventually removed.
So how do we, as practitioners, pivot and adapt to this new reality? How do you “read the room” when the room is now separated in different tiles across multiple screens? How do you create a trustful and respectful environment that is crucial in a mediation? How do you present in a dynamic and engaging way that ensures you are connected with your audience? When you are no longer able to impose your presence physically, what are the new skills you require in order to present your case effectively?
Hear from our speakers, Mr Chong Yee Leong, Ms Sujatha Bhargavan, Professor Joel Lee and Ms Judy Liu who will provide you with the dos and don’ts of virtual hearing advocacy.
