(This Webinar is organised by Hong Kong Mediation Council - a division of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre)
The Mediation Ordinance ("MO") does not specifically use the word "facilitative". However, the definition of "mediation" as stated in Section 4 of MO is the facilitative model. Disputes vary and there is no one-size-fits-all resolution model. The fact that there are different models of mediation says it all. Evaluative skills are useful in mediation. Some parties in fact expect and request the mediator to evaluate their cases.
What are the cases suitable for Evaluative Mediation? Should it be applied to healthcare and personal injury disputes? These questions will be addressed in the Seminar. After the presentations, there will be a Panel Discussion during which two very experienced mediators/ advocates and a mediator/ surgeon will share their experience and views from different perspectives. This will be followed by a Q&A session .
This Webinar will be run in English from 06:30pm to 08:00pm on 17 August 2021 (Tuesday), and targets mediators, lawyers, healthcare workers and anyone who is interested in knowing more about the topic of Evaluative Mediation. Registered participants will receive the relevant Zoom details closer to the date of the Webinar.
