Mediation Advocacy Training Workshop -30 November 2019 (Saturday)
Despite the widespread use of mediation, mediation advocacy remains one of the most overlooked and underestimated facets of its practice. It is different in many ways from court advocacy or other types of advocacy. This full-day workshop will examine the role of the mediation advocate, the essential skills and techniques that he needs to deploy at various stages of the mediation process, as well as issues of professional and ethical conduct faced by the mediation advocate. It will also explore how barristers and solicitors may apply or adapt their lawyering skills to mediation.
The first of its kind in many years, the workshop is jointly organised by the Hong Kong Bar Association and the Hong Kong Mediation Council. It will be led by two eminent trainers and practitioners in the field. Hailing from London, Michel Kallipetis QC has been described as a "mediator who instantly commands respect" and a "senior statesman in the UK mediation market". Philip Howell-Richardson is one of the UK's top mediators and has been a Visiting Professor at HKU.
