CEDR Mediator Training wins accreditation from the Law Society of Hong Kong Thursday 29 May 2008 PDF Print CEDR, widely recognised at the global leader in commercial mediator training, has been accredited under the Law Society' of Hong Kong’s Mediator Accreditation Scheme. Since its foundation in 1990 CEDR has trained 3,000 people to become commercial mediators around the world. Now mediators trained by CEDR in Hong Kong will be recognised by the Law Society, regulating 6,000 solicitors in the region. In 2007 CEDR trained a total of 1,000 delegates in a range of different negotiation and conflict related skills. This included 300 delegates trained in mediation skills. CEDR trained 500 conflict specialists internationally in 2007, from South America to China and from Cameroon to Dublin. It also ran its acclaimed International Mediation Skills Training Summer School in Barcelona, to be held again in August 2008. Danny McFadden, Director of CEDR, commented, “The accreditation of our training programme by the Law Society of Hong Kong coincides with the first open course we have run there taking place 18-23 July 2008. We have previously run in-house courses in Hong Kong for law firms and with the Hong Kong Bar Council, but to have our first open course recognised in this way is an important milestone in this major global trading centre”.
