Robert Rhodes QC speaks at the 4th Asian Mediation Conference
Robert Rhodes QC of Outer Temple Chambers, who is often a keynote speaker at ADR conferences in China and Hong Kong, has this time been invited by the Asian Mediation Association to present at the 4th Asian Mediation Conference.
The theme of the event, taking place on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st October in Beijing, is “New Global Trend of Mediation – Similarities and Differences”.
Robert, the only English barrister speaking at the conference, will be part of two different panels on both days. These will explore subjects as “International Trend of On-line Dispute Resolution” and “How Do Mediation and Arbitration Play Their Respective Roles in Resolving Disputes Arising from Foreign Commerce?”
Other discussions over the two days will be on the history and development of Mediation and on Dispute Resolution reform. Mediation methods in Eastern and Western countries will also be compared and illustrated through successful cases.
Invitees such as the President of the Chinese Supreme People’s Court and the Secretary of Justice for Hong Kong are expected to cover some of these topics.
Robert practises as both counsel and arbitrator/mediator and is on the panel of several Far Eastern arbitration and mediation institutions.
