2017 Asia-Pacific Commercial Mediation Competition
The 2017 Asia-Pacific Commercial Mediation Competition was held in Melbourne, 7-9 July, the first regional mediation competition in the Asia-Pacific.
Teams competing were from Singapore, India, New Zealand and Australia with the final being held on 9th July between the National University of Singapore and the University of Auckland. The winning team was the National University of Singapore.
The ICC Australia Asia-Pacific Commercial Mediation Competition allows university students gain valuable skills in mediation, an essential area of dispute resolution in international commercial law.
About the Competition
ICC Australia wishes to empower tomorrow's business leaders and legal minds, equipping them with the skills to better meet the dispute resolution needs of international businesses in an increasingly cross-cultural and global marketplace. Through this competition, students will learn to effectively combine the use of mediation and collaborative problem-solving skills to successfully represent parties' interests and progress towards a settlement.
The Competition acts as a regional preliminary round to the ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition, held annually at the ICC Global Headquarters in Paris, France. There is a reserved place in the ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition in February 2018 for the winning team.
