WA Law week | Mediation and adjudication – synergistic partners or rivals?

With the Hon. Wayne Martin AC QC

Monday 13 May 2019 | Perth

The Resolution Institute and Jackson McDonald are pleased to welcome Resolution Institute Ambassador the Honourable Wayne Martin AC QC who will share with us his views and experiences in mediation and adjudication. In particular, he will assess the question of whether mediation and adjudication are alternative and competitive mechanisms for the resolution of disputes, or whether they are complementary components of a system of dispute resolution, and if the latter, how they might be better integrated.

This event is addressed for Legal profession, mediators, adjudicators, conflict resolvers.
