Curated by The PACT

The PACT is curating this course with the lead of SCMA, London, to provide Indian and foreign lawyers with advance training in mediation advocacy.

Conflict is inevitable in any society and with the economy and globalisation penetrating every sphere of life, disputes and differences are on the rise. Young lawyers have been brought up to read the bare Acts – find the loophole in the law and the weakness of the other’s legal position and polarise the disputing parties. 

However, advocacy is majorly untouched. Particularly, the legal industry in this age demands a more adaptive and productive lawyer, one who can represent client in any setting – in the courtroom or out of it. As in courtroom, Alternative Dispute Resolution methods (like mediation, conciliation, and arbitration) cover a limitless array of concepts, skills,  and viewpoints.
