CEDR Mediator Skills Training - Hong Kong

Thursday, March 16, 2017 — Tuesday, March 21, 2017
Hong Kong

CEDR Mediator skills training is a five-day programme of comprehensive tuition and participation in effective dispute resolution where participants are trained in the skills needed for effective mediation of commercial disputes and assessed for CEDR Accreditation, internationally recognised as the standard of excellence. 

Programme content

Days 1 and 2 - Skills and process are considered and tried in practical exercise. Case studies, based on actual mediations, are used and participants experience the role of mediator, adviser and party.

Day 3 - A practice day of shared learning in preparation for the assessed days.

Days 4 and 5 (assessed) – Each delegate mediates two simulated cases. A faculty member observes and assesses performance against a set of competencies.

CEDR Accreditation

Accreditation is based on the assessments of Days 4 and 5. Participants must also complete a three-part written assignment. The Certificate of Accreditation is awarded to participants who demonstrate the required level of competence to achieve the status of:

1. CEDR Accredited Mediator
2. HKMAAL Stage 1.

CEDR is accredited as an approved body under the Law Society’s Mediator Accreditation Scheme. A CEDR accredited mediator will be exempted from the training requirements in Stage 1 and the mediation assessment in Stage 2 of the requirements for accreditation as a General Mediator on the Hong Kong Law Society Panel.


The course relies heavily on interactive teaching methodology. This demands a high level of competence in spoken English and comprehension from delegates.


Participants will need to prepare thoroughly and a minimum of 16 hours pre-reading should be allowed. A mediator handbook, case studies including construction cases and role-plays are dispatched one month in advance.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Law Society of Hong Kong CPD points have been applied for.
