About the Capacity Building Workshop Series

The Centre for Mediation and Research of Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai is proud to announce a series of Capacity Building Workshops on various aspects of Mediation and Conflict Resolution.

The first workshop in this series will be held from 12th to 14th of February, 2021, and will focus on the ‘Legal Validity of Mediation’. As Mediation is still a relative novice concept in India and combined with the fact that there is a constant rise in the number of cases being referred to mediation by various courts across the country, it is important that as law students and professionals, and anyone interested in the field of Mediation and Conciliation, we equip ourselves with knowledge about the relevant laws regarding the areas of Mediation and Conciliation. This workshop aims to do just that.


Open to Students and Professionals from all the disciplines

Resource Person

Mr. Prathamesh D. Popat [Mediator, Conciliator, Trainer]
