*This course is now organised by The Academy of International Dispute Resolution & Professional Negotiation (AIDRN). For more information, please visit:

With China’s development of the "Belt and Road”, the surge in cross-border investment and business growth is anticipated. The accompanying commercial disputes thus increases, so does enterprises’ demand for cross-border mediation services. On the other hand, the Supreme People’s Court is also actively promoting the reform of Diversified Dispute Resolution Mechanism. Having been highly recommended by the Chinese Government, the tendency of adopting the Diversified Dispute Resolution Mechanism is expected in the Mainland.

Our Center has established cross-border dispute resolution services, combining the strengths of both international mediation and arbitration, so that the arbitral award can be applied and executed in more than 150 regions all over the world. The parties need not file the same litigation repeatedly in different jurisdictions. Mediation does not only save time and money, but it also helps enterprises maintain their reputations and partnerships. Therefore, mediation is advantageous and irreplaceable in terms of autonomy, confidentiality, compatibility and flexibility, etc.
Aim of the Course
This course mainly teaches mediation concepts, procedures, skills and related legal knowledge of the Mainland and Hong Kong through a range of interactive in-class activities, such as group discussions, real cases sharing and simulated cases (role play) exercises, etc. so that students can master all kinds of mediation skills in order to become a professional mediator. Students can also enhance their personal communication abilities and improve their interpersonal skills, effectively utilizing different mediation skills in dealing with disputes and conflicts in daily life and at work, in an organized and systematic manner.
