As the only international mediation competition held in Latin America, the CPR International Mediation Competition is a unique opportunity for students to learn and practice mediation and negotiation skills through the role-playing of a mediation problem drafted by experienced mediators and practitioners. The competition convenes students and distinguished ADR professionals from around the globe providing exceptional networking opportunities.

After the success of the previous editions, CPR is delighted to announce the 2022 CPR International Mediation Competition, which will take place over the week of March 26 - April 3, 2022. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have decided to again host this competition remotely via videoconference, which replicates the current reality of international dispute resolution and allows for travel-free access to this competition globally.
