October saw us in Chicago attending "Mediation week" and "Conflict Resolution Day" organised by the Association for Conflict Resolution Chicago Chapter

On the 16th October we attended the law offices of Much Shelist who hosted a celebration of Conflict Resolution Day, attended by a variety of organisations.  We met Mediators, Attorneys, Conciliators, Arbitrators and many other specialists in the the Alternative Dispute Resolution field.  We were able to discuss with our US counterparts their experiences of dispute resolution and how it has benefited their clients.

Did you know that most major corporations in the US now rountinely screen every dispute to see if it is suitable for MEDIATION ?
