Course Introduction Course Details
Background
Following the international tendency of globalization and regional integration, and the dedicated promotion of various development strategies and plans of China, including the construction of the "Belt and Road”, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and the "Thirteenth Five Year Plan”, more and more cross-border commercial and trading businesses are being brought about. It is then expected that commercial disputes will follow, thus increasing the reliance on the legal system and dispute resolution services. With the doubled advantages of "One Country” and "Two Systems”, Hong Kong can provide cross-border dispute resolution services. Mediators in Hong Kong are thus faced with more challenges, and more opportunities to handle mediation cases for commercial disputes which may involve or be caused by the difference in judiciary systems and social institutions in cross-border settings.
Aim of the Course
This Course is designed for mediators who intend to become an International Accredited Professional Mediator of MHJMC and those who are interested in dealing with cross-border commercial disputes. The Diversified Dispute Resolution Mechanism of the Mainland and mediation mode for cross-border commercial disputes will be taught in this Course. This is to let mediators in Hong Kong better adapt to the cross-border circumstance where the judiciary systems can be different. It is hoped that when students are learning to handle cross-border commercial disputes, their already-equipped mediation knowledge and professional skills can be further enhanced and reinforced.

Students who have completed this Course and passed the assessment can apply to become the International Accredited Professional Mediator of MHJMC, putting theories and skills learned in the Course into practice on this mediation platform for resolving cross-border commercial disputes. Moreover, upon completion of this Course, students will be awarded 15 CPD points from Hong Kong Mediation Centre, while the application for 15 CPD points from Hong Kong Mediation Accreditation Association Limited (HKMAAL) is still pending.
