Mediation 2021: Where Do We Go from Here? – Asia-Pacific

                                           Program and Registration for Asia-Pacific Symposium


We are navigating unchartered waters in virtually every aspect of our lives.  Whether by choice or triggered by external factors, the ways we deal with each other (and perhaps view ourselves) have changed. So too has mediation which has become a more globalized profession involving new legal and factual challenges unheard of only a few years ago.  These symposiums will explore our changing professional world and ask “ where do we go from here?”

Please note start times are 1 pm (Hong Kong/Singapore) / 3 pm (Brisbane) / 4pm (Sydney) / 6 pm (New Zealand).
