The Singapore Mediation Lecture series aims to enhance the understanding and use of mediation in resolving commercial disputes.

The Singapore Mediation Lecture 2016 will be delivered by Mr Colin Rule, former Director of Online Dispute Resolution at eBay and PayPal.

In the Lecture Mr Rule will discuss the challenges of resolving disputes in cyberspace and useful lessons to be learnt, drawing from his knowledge of ODR systems that are already in operation (such as eBay and PayPal's systems which resolve over 60 million disputes per year), as well as how ODR could create a new justice system for the internet – which one day may replace face-to-face justice systems altogether.

The Singapore Mediation Lecture is proudly brought to you by Harry Elias Partnership LLP and Singapore Mediation Centre, in collaboration with the Singapore Management University. Registration for the lecture will be posted soon.
