Course Overview

Resolving conflicts and issues in corporate and legal environments are a key topic of discussion in many organisations today. No matter which industry you belong to, being competent in dispute resolution has become vital.

This Alternative Dispute Resolution training program prepares students to analyse the root causes and undercurrents of conflict and ways to transform disputes through rational and practical meditation techniques.

This requires creative use of academic understanding, communication and problem-solving competencies, and the persistence to work through the issues that can obscure negotiations. Ethical issues and the role of the participants in each process will also be analysed.

The Alternative Dispute Resolution training program also focuses on creating self-awareness and social competency, forming common ground, launching lines of communication, guaranteeing submission and appreciation, developing long-lasting relationships, and the capacity to identify viable opportunities for resolution.

Successful dispute resolution helps reduce the costs and undesirable effects on relationships that often arise from business-related disagreements. If informal negotiation fails to settle a dispute, mediation or arbitration can be the next best alternative to avoid litigation in court.

  • Construction Adjudication
