About the Institute

The ILS Centre for Arbitration and Mediation (ILSCA) was established on 3rd December 2016 by the Governing Council of the Indian Law Society with the primary aim of providing facilities for ad-hoc and also institutional arbitration and mediation, both in domestic as well as international spheres, alongside conducting training programmes and courses centred around ADR.

To achieve this aim, we have raised a state-of-the-art infrastructure situated in a separate designated building with facilities which help us achieve our commitment to promote a cordial and rational settlement of disputes between parties through arbitration as well as other methods of dispute resolution. Along with the institutional set up, we also provide training through workshops, training programs and courses. These are offered to members of the legal fraternity, students and other professionals who have an interest in arbitration and mediation. We collaborate with other professional institutes, wherever necessary, for accrediting Arbitrators and Mediators.

In a short span since its establishment and active functioning, ILSCA has emerged as a popular venue for the conduct of arbitral and mediation proceedings, as well as a Centre with immense learning opportunities and training programmes.
