About the Boot camp:
Lawctopus & The PACT are conducting a two day (14 Hours) online boot camp on Negotiation, Mediation & Conciliation.
The boot camp will be held on December 12 & 13 from morning 10:00 AM to evening 5:00 PM.
This will be a one stop experience for you to develop a complete understanding of the three primary alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, i.e Negotiation, Mediation & Conciliation.
This boot camp will be a combination of theory & practice simulations that will be customized as per the needs of the trainees.
Why learn about Negotiation, Mediation & Conciliation?
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has been one of the most talked-about legal phenomena in the recent past. It is increasingly becoming important in legal education (BCI has recently mandated Mediation & Conciliation as a mandatory subject for all LLB students) to prepare lawyers & law students for the rising use of ADR. Foreign jurisdictions have already seen a spike in ADR being adopted as the default conflict resolution mechanism & it is gaining momentum in India. Post-COVID era is predicted to rely heavily on ADR too.
With a strong thrust to pre-litigation mediation, it is important to upskill & learn about ADR processes to serve our clients better.
