UIA and LAWASIA are proud to present details of our upcoming collaboration: Alternative Dispute Resolution in the New Normal – The Steady Rise of Arbitration and Mediation. We warmly invite our members and friends to register for this unique event, and join us as we explore pertinent issues arising in ADR from a multi-jurisdictional legal perspective.

As the world emerges from the COVID pandemic and adjusts to the altered legal landscape that will follow, many have suggested that arbitration and mediation will continue to rise to the forefront. Even before the crisis, jurisdictions worldwide have seen increased acceptance of international arbitration to resolve cross-border disputes as well as broader interest in international mediation.

The recent signing of the Singapore Mediation Convention augurs still greater reliance on mediation in large part because it promises to facilitate enforcement of resulting settlement agreements.

In light of the realities of the post-COVID legal world, the flexibility and adaptability of the arbitration and mediation processes suggest that both may reach new heights if their advocates and practitioners know how to adapt to the “new normal."

In this first joint webinar by LAWASIA and UIA (Union Internationale des Avocats), experts from both organisations will address the promise and the pitfalls of arbitration and mediation in the post-COVID world.
