Sir Henry Brooke appointed Chairman of the Civil Mediation Council
CEDR Exchange member Sir Henry Brooke takes over the role of Chairman from Lord Slynn.
A statement from the CMC said: "Sir Henry will chair the Board and bring his zest and experience to our work. The appeal judge who in Dunnett v Railtrack plc placed mediation firmly at the heart of the civil litigator's thinking, he is now a trained mediator with a year of practice and several dozen mediations behind him. I believe he has trained with three providers and attends other courses, both to lecture and to listen. He is a fresh inspiration."
