I was at the Arbitrators and Mediators Conference over last weekend. Among other papers I presented one on an update for Building and Construction Law, which will be posted on the AMINZ website. I also received my Fellowship Certificate, and a prize for Best Mediation Agreement. Apart from the personal matters, the conference was a great success, with many well considered papers and presentations., and a real tribute to the effert of the organisers. It seems that alternative dispute resolution is growing and actively taking over court work. If we could learn to mediate more crime perhaps we wouldnt need to put prisoners in shipping containers!
