Alternative Dispute Resolution is getting to "Yes", or closer to it, by way of negotiation and mediation. At the ADR Society we’ll show you how to move your interests closer to agreement on commercial disputes and interpersonal conflicts, reviving trade agreements and restoring lost trust.
It's a saviour skill, valued by law firms, and getting to "Yes" is what we're about at the ADR Society.
If you’re looking for an enjoyable way to build communication skills, add to your CV, and gain relevant experience in the legal or business field, ADR is a perfect fit for you. Throughout the year, we will have events both online and in person to suit any comfort level. Additionally, there is an opportunity for two students to represent QUB at international competitions (in places like Paris and Vienna!), where you can practice your ADR skills while travelling Europe and making international connections.
You may already know the cues to listen for and the pitfalls to avoid, so if this sounds like you we’d love to chat with you! If this seems new and you fancy practising these skills and understanding tactical or timely offers, feel free to sign up in the relevant tab.
Law is a people business, and if you can build a connection, you can build a bridge. Who doesn’t want that skill on their CV?
Please email email@example.com with your name and student number if you wish to join - introductory workshops will run during the first few weeks of the semester and we will commence with face-to-face practice rounds and training seminars with professional litigators skilled in arbitration and mediation.
