QLD Effective Mediations


The vast majority of cases in modern times settle at mediation or compulsory conference. The benefits of proceeding to court are often outweighed by an earlier resolution by agreement between the parties. Ensuring your client and his or her case is properly prepared is critical to achieving the best possible outcome at mediation.

The ALA presents three of the State’s leading mediators to share their extensive experience on Effective Mediations.

This is a seminar not to be missed. Places are limited. Book now !
