About the Workshop
ICC’s new Mediation Rules came into force on 1 January
2014. Produced within the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR by a task force of dispute resolution
specialists and company representatives from 29 countries, the new Rules are
administered by the ICC International Centre for ADR. They replace the ICC ADR
Rules, used for amicable dispute resolution since 2001 and are accompanied by
the ICC Mediation Guidance Notes.
The ICC Mediation Rules are the standard set of rules
for the conduct of international commercial mediations. Companies, lawyers and
mediators wishing to participate in mediations under the Rules need to be aware
of some of the specific characteristics of these Rules. This Workshop will give
participants a comprehensive overview of the ICC Mediation Rules and today’s
conduct of commercial mediations under the Rules.
By using a practical case-study approach, role-plays
and mock mediation sessions to address a series of situations that arise during
mediation proceedings, participants will gain the expertise and competence to participate
in a mediation under the ICC Mediation Rules.
The Workshop will feature experienced users of ICC
mediation, including company representatives, counsel and mediators. Members of
the ICC International Centre for ADR will explain the Centre’s case management
practices, alongside members of the Drafting Group of the new ICC Mediation
Rules, who can give participants first-hand insight into the new provisions.
The Workshop will benefit practicing lawyers,
corporate counsel, mediators and other dispute resolution specialists who wish
to deepen their understanding of the ICC Mediation Rules.
The Workshop is limited to 40 participants to ensure a
high quality experience.
