About ADR-Mediation Society
We are here to train our members in the art of Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Using scenarios from academic sources and credible international institutions such as the International Chambers of Commerce, we engage the members simulations where they develope knowledge and skills in solving disputes as a professional mediator would.
Constructive feedback and reflection are key to our training methods. With these, we believe anybody can become a great mediator or arbitrator. Those skills can be transferred in the real life as disputes appear in friendships, university workshops and many more situations so membership is open to all!
Weekly attendance can lead to representing York in competitions such as the ICC Mediation competition the UK National Student Mediation Competition and the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators Mediation Competition. Through competing, members will be eligible to take up some fantastic work experience opportunities with our partners.
