This interactive, advanced mediation and advocacy course will explore the legal, cultural and regulatory frameworks within which to navigate the negotiation and mediation of international cross-border disputes. Participants will take away an appreciation for the dynamics of commercial decision making in a global context, confidence in their ability to engage cross-cultural challenges constructively in the parties’ negotiations, and techniques for bringing genuine value to the mediator’s role in delivering a more satisfying mediation experience overall. In addition to advanced mediator techniques arising in the international context, this course will take a deeper dive into managing cross-cultural and co-mediation challenges arising in global disputes. Advocates, negotiators and mediators alike will also explore various ethical standards applicable to international mediation and begin the process of thinking more adroitly about the role of ethics and persuasion in mediated settlement negotiations in a global marketplace. Application of the Singapore Convention and enforcement of cross-border mediated settlements will also be addressed. Video vignettes, case studies, faculty demonstrations and team exercises will illustrate key learning points and encourage lively input/engagement of workshop participants.
