Course Description

With China’s development of the "Belt and Road”, the surge in cross-border investment and business growth is anticipated. The accompanying commercial disputes thus increase, so does enterprises’ demand for cross-border mediation services. On the other hand, the Supreme People’s Court is also actively promoting the reform of the Diversified Dispute Resolution Mechanism. Having been highly recommended by the Chinese Government, the tendency of adopting the Diversified Dispute Resolution Mechanism is expected in the Mainland.

The cross-border dispute resolution services provided by the International Dispute Resolution and Risk Management Institute (IDRRMI) combine the strengths of both international mediation and arbitration, so that the arbitral award can be applied and executed in more than 150 regions all over the world. The parties need not file the same litigation repeatedly in different jurisdictions. Mediation does not only save time and money, but it also helps enterprises maintain their reputations and partnerships. Therefore, mediation is advantageous and irreplaceable in terms of autonomy, confidentiality, compatibility, and flexibility, etc.

Aim of the Course

Catering to the demand of enterprises for cross-border/ international dispute resolution service, this professional training course seeks to promote the use of dispute resolution in businesses and facilitate the development of the international trade stimulating initiatives such as the Greater Bay Area, Belt, and Road Initiative (BRI), Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), as well as the internationalization of enterprises around the world. This course mainly teaches mediation concepts, procedures, skills, related legal knowledge of the Mainland and Hong Kong, and international mediation practices. Our course also allows participants to be familiar with international law, the development of mediation in various countries, and the United Nations' Mediation Convention. Through a range of interactive in-class activities, such as group discussions, real case sharing, and simulated cases (role play) exercises, participants can gain practical experience in hosting mediation sessions. Our professionally trained coaches would provide real-time feedback to participants in the role-play sessions, which facilitate accurate and comprehensive learning experiences. These designs would enhance their personal communication abilities and improve their interpersonal skills, effectively utilizing different mediation skills in dealing with disputes and conflicts in daily life and at work, in an organized and systematic manner. Participants with successfully accredited accreditation are expected to become leaders in the field.
