MEDIA RELEASE: New partnership to maximise skills and experience

Resolution Institute and The College of Law are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership aimed at establishing a symbiotic cooperation which will maximise the resources of both organisations through mutual collaboration and the sharing of expertise and efforts in education and training. 

As a result of this partnership, College of Law students completing the Family Dispute Resolution Practice or the National Mediator Accreditation Systems accredited Mediator training program will now automatically receive free student Resolution Institute membership for the duration of their course and a 20 per cent discount on Resolution Institute’s professional membership fee for the first year of membership.

“We have a mutual opportunity and alignment between both organisations, and we want to broaden the value for both the College of Law students and new Resolution Institute members, where they are offered not only a quality and recognised educational experience but also the connectivity, recognition, and advancement that they have come to expect from a membership organisation,” said Amber Williams, CEO of Resolution Institute.

Consumers today are more driven to maximise the quality and value of the services that they purchase and engage with. This is especially important in the fields of education and membership where trust, credibility, integrity, and innovation are important aspects of the quality of any program, while recognition, connectivity and advancement are important post program value propositions.

“Beyond the material benefits of discounts on development, insurance, a complaint handling process and many other benefits that comes with membership, our key differentiator with this partnership is our lifelong journey with each student and dispute resolution practitioner, as we support the College of Law students post their accreditation with advancing their careers,” said Ms. Williams.

Neville Carter, CEO, College of Law, says: “The College of Law is committed to providing access to services and organisations that support our students during their studies and careers. We look forward to this mutually beneficial partnership which will provide students with added value, education and expertise from two credible organisations.” 

Angie Zandstra – Chief Commercial Officer, concludes: “We are thrilled to partner with Resolution Institution. FDRP and mediation are two of our flagship practitioner programs that are increasingly sought in the marketplace. The College of Law exists for the purpose of enhancing legal education and training and ultimately the provision of legal and law-related services. We look forward to implementing the partnership with the Resolution Institution to achieve this outcome.”
