NT Anti-Discrimination Commission Darwin and Alice Springs Training 2020

We’re excited to announce two sets of Anti-Discrimination Commission training, face to face with our new trainer, Anika Freiling.

She will be kicking off with public training in Darwin in the week of 9 – 13 November and then venturing down to Alice Springs for the week of 7 – 11 December.

So if you’ve got Zoom-fatigue and you want to train live with a real person and an interactive course, register now! All training will comply with COVID19 physical distancing requirements, so in some cases numbers may be restricted by the size of the available room.

These two sets of training will include, for the first time in each city, our new Trans and Gender Diverse People module. So if you’re interested in providing great customer service, diversity and inclusion in your workplace, or just want to learn about changing language and being respectful, come along.

There’s a flyer for each city attached, with all the dates, venues and costs. There’s also a registration form, so you can nominate one or more of your people for any of the courses.

Alternative Dispute Resolution in the New Normal - 18 August 2020

The Steady Rise of Arbitration and Mediation

LawAsia complimentary webinar

Tuesday 18 August 2020
18.00-19.00 AEST

Click here for more information and to register.

LawAsia together with the UIA are proud to present details of our upcoming collaboration: Alternative Dispute Resolution in the New Normal – The Steady Rise of Arbitration and Mediation. We warmly invite our members and friends to register for this unique event, and join us as we explore pertinent issues arising in ADR from a multi-jurisdictional legal perspective.

As the world emerges from the COVID pandemic and adjusts to the altered legal landscape that will follow, many have suggested that arbitration and mediation will continue to rise to the forefront. Even before the crisis, jurisdictions worldwide have seen increased acceptance of international arbitration to resolve cross-border disputes as well as broader interest in international mediation.

The recent signing of the Singapore Mediation Convention augurs still greater reliance on mediation in large part because it promises to facilitate enforcement of resulting settlement agreements.

In light of the realities of the post-COVID legal world, the flexibility and adaptability of the arbitration and mediation processes suggest that both may reach new heights if their advocates and practitioners know how to adapt to the 'new normal'.

Mongolia 33rd LawAsia Conference - 7-10 September 2020


NT Anti-Discrimination Commission Training - Sept to Oct 2020

We’re pleased to announce that we’re planning face-to-face training for our next public training in Darwin, in the week of 28 September to 2 October 2020.

It’s later than we had hoped, because we needed to book a room big enough for the 1.5 metre physical distancing. Of course if there are any changes to physical distancing or other COVID-19 restrictions, we will need to revise our plans. So while we’re hoping to offer 20 places per course, if we need to reduce the number of people in a given course, priority will be given to those who registered first.

We’re also really excited to announce that for the first time, we’re offering our new “Trans and Gender Diverse People” workshop as a public course. See the below flyer for information about the course content.

We’re happy to take your registration as soon as you’re ready to send it through, but please make sure we get it by 18 September.

If you’re looking for training in other centres, we’re in the process of finalising room bookings. As soon as we have firm dates, we’ll let you know.

Remember that we also offer each of these courses as a customised workshop at your premises for a more economical way to train larger groups.
