Outline of topic:
Mediation is now being introduced in all Courts in an effort to clear the backlog of cases, as it has proven to be effective, and saves the parties both time and costs.  The Courts are taking an active role is settling disputes using commercial sense and legal principles.  Mediation is a suitable option for maritime and insurance cases, which are specialised in nature, and its use will reduce the incidence of lengthy and overdue cases in the Courts.
 
This event is specifically designed for maritime and insurance industry players as well as legal practitioners.  It will allow participants to interact directly with the Judge and explore a range of issues, including how a court looks at a case, and what factors influence the choice of whether to settle.
