40-Hours Online Mediation Training Programme

The ILS Centre for Arbitration and Mediation (ILSCA) was established on 3rd December 2016 by the Governing Council of the Indian Law Society. The main purpose of establishing this Centre is to provide facilities for holding ad-hoc and institutional arbitrations and mediations, both in domestic as well as International spheres. Another purpose is to provide hands on experience to interested participants in learning the process of Arbitration and Mediation through various programmes.

Arbitration and Mediation have gained immense popularity as effective modes of dispute settlement in the recent years. This calls for good training in the procedures and nuances of Arbitration and Mediation not only for people in the legal fraternity, but also for people of other professions. Under the COVID Pandemic, ILSCA has geared up to provide online training programmes in Arbitration and Mediation catering to lawyers, students of law, leading businesses and legal institutes. ILSCA intends to bridge the gap between theory and practice through online training programmes in both these areas which are gaining great importance in the legal profession. To this effect, we now announce the 40-hours Online Mediation Training Programme.
