Family Mediation Week Seminars – Tues 24 & Thurs 26 January 2017

Mediators preparing Consent Orders? Judges mediating? What on earth is going on?

Andrew Baines, Family Mediator and Solicitor, invites you to a conversation about what is happening in the world of family dispute resolution.

Do principles matter or does profit override all in this post-truth era? Do mediators understand that a consent order is there to allow the state to intervene on behalf of one or other of the participants? Do judges understand that their view of a dispute is a total irrelevance in mediation? What does all this mean for the advice sought by your clients?

The seminar hosted by Andrew Baines will fall within the requirement A1 and A2 of your Statement of Solicitor Competence and may be used to evidence continuing competence as required by the SRA.
