To mark CEDR’s 30th anniversary (14th Nov 2020), we spoke to the 3 people most intimately involved in the organisation now and since its inception.

We explore:

– Why CEDR was founded
– Changing and emerging trends in ADR
– How the relationship between the ADR and legal community has evolved
– Developments in the role of the mediator and the wider use of the mediator skill-set
– The challenges facing mediation and ADR as well as opportunities for innovation
