ArbDB Member Michael Cover acted as Mediator and Judge in the Second UK Mediation Skills Competition organized by the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators over the weekend of 14/15 January 2012. As an experienced mediator Michael were able to bring their skills to bear in the opening round and semi-finals, which saw teams from 14 top UK Universities and Law Schools pit their problem-solving skills against each other in mock mediations. These mediations were guided by top professional mediators. The winners and runners-up, London Metropolitan University and the University of Northumbria, were both able to progress to the ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition in Paris between 3 and 8 February 2012.
Michael commented: “ Murray and I were delighted to be able to contribute to the success of this second UK Mediation Skills Competition and look forward to acting as a Mediator and Judge again in Paris at the ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition.”
