Free Seminars  members (and their clients) are offered up to three free seminars from a comprehensive programme covering mediation, negotiation and conflict management skills.  Popular options include trainee introductions to mediation sessions, as well as lunchtime seminars for litigation teams on an aspect of alternative dispute resolution, such as making effective offers in a negotiation.

Sponsorship/Partnership Opportunities – CEDR will approach members before other organisations to explore partnering opportunities, whether in specific sectors or jurisdictions. Members continue to fund projects which aim to make a positive impact on both the cost of and outcomes of conflict through research, innovation and development of pragmatic conflict solutions. CEDR is also happy to support members’ own ADR initiatives on request, including client-specific projects such as mediation coaching and ADR scheme development, plus sector or international development.

Promotion our members are profiled on our website, at events and in our publications. Members are also entitled to unlimited use of our CEDR Member logo.
