Mediation is an internationally recognized form of alternative dispute resolution – focused on collaboration, creativity and closure. Mediation is quite simply defined as a negotiation facilitated by a professionally trained and skilled, neutral person.Mediation has gained tremendous momentum in India in the post-pandemic era and is set to become the primary mechanism for parties in dispute, who are seeking a time-effective, cost-efficient and confidential forum to resolve contentious issues in business relations, personal lives and community affairs. Asian School of Cyber Laws has affiliated with The PACT to launch this basic course in Mediation. The PACT has been a pioneering mediation education firm, equipping the next generation of Indian lawyers with collaborative dispute resolution skills since 2016.
