JAMS-SPONSORED EVENT

New Perspectives, New Opportunities: Emerging Themes in Dispute Resolution

Presented by JAMS and the International Dispute Resolution Centre

JAMS presents a multi part, hybrid webinar series of “Cocktails and Conversations”

New Perspectives, New Opportunities: Emerging Themes in Dispute Resolution

Our ability to manage and resolve disputes all share one commonality: individuals, businesses and organizations in conflict will need assistance to find their way forward. As we reimagine connectivity and anticipate the disputes of the future, we must integrate the collective learning from the past fifteen months into sustainable practices for the future.

It will take time to listen and learn from our own reflections and those of others, strengthening our relationships and resilience as we do so. This is the starting point for new conversations about the ideas that will carry us forward - because when we collaborate, we find possibilities that would be impossible to discover alone.

JAMS panelists, together with support from local institutions, ADR practitioners, lawyers, business leaders will host a series of engaging and topic-focused “Cocktails and Conversations”. In these relaxed and informal sessions, attendees will engage with a panel of industry experts while enjoying cocktails and canapés to welcome the opening up of business, new perspectives and new opportunities.
