Hong Kong Mediation Lecture 2019: The Benefits and Technical Challenges of Combining Mediation with Arbitration as Complementary Processes

Arbitration and mediation both have strengths and weaknesses as commercial dispute resolution processes. There is nevertheless great promise in combining the two methods, provided one keeps in mind the reason for doing so, and certain traps for the unwary.  We are very honoured to have Professor Jack J. Coe Jr., Professor of Law, Pepperdine Law School, as the speaker of this inaugural Lecture of the newly launched series of Hong Kong Mediation Lecture.
