"The course, besides providing a strong theoretical basis, also gave me insights into mediation practice that enriched the whole experience. I learned the basics to start a mediation career and sufficient material to foster critical thinking about the dispute resolution system and access to justice. I highly recommend the course for those who wish to build a robust understanding of mediation in an enjoyable manner."
"As a law graduate who wants to work in mediation I found it really difficult to improve my practical skills in that field. There are some really good courses providing theoretical knowledge about mediation but we're still missing that practical step. For me that gap is filled by Mediator Academy. This is honestly priceless for me."
"I highly recommend this course to anyone with an interest in ADR. It gave me a thorough understand of commercial mediation from what to expect from a mediator right through to examining mediation laws and the implications of the recent Singapore Convention. The quality of the videos and role-play scenarios made it fun to learn."
