Aug 30: ADC-ICC Asia Pacific Mediation Competition
August 30, 2020 @ 8:00 am - September 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
The 4th Annual ADC-ICC Asia-Pacific Commercial Mediation Competition creates a unique opportunity for university students to practice their negotiation skills in a commercial mediation setting; an essential area of dispute resolution in international commercial law.
The ADC and ICC seek to empower tomorrow’s business leaders and legal minds, equipping them with skills to better meet the dispute resolution needs of international commerce in an expanding and increasingly complex marketplace. Through this Competition, students learn to effectively combine the use of negotiation strategies, mediation and collaborative problem-solving skills to successfully represent their client’s interests and seek settlement.
The Competition acts as a regional preliminary round to the ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition, held annually at the ICC Global Headquarters in Paris, France. There is a reserved place in the prestigious Paris Competition 2021 for the winning team from the ADC-ICC regional event. In an exciting 2020 Paris Grand Final, the winning team from last year’s Asia-Pacific Competition were again the winners, against 65 international teams.
