Mediation is a fast growing sphere of legal practice, and one that is gaining increasing prominence around the world.

The INADR was founded in 2002, to further the awareness of mediation as a means of establishing peaceful resolution. Our mission is to encourage society to resolve its disputes in a more sensitive and efficient manner; through mediation.

The focus of the Academy has been in education at the undergraduate, graduate, law school, and professional levels.

With the introduction of ADR Modules in Law Schools all over the world, our mission grows more and more relevant.

About the Tournaments

Our aim is to provide Law Students with a practical understanding of Mediation and the role it plays in the practice of law. To this end it offers mediation training and sponsors tournaments where participants have the opportunity to learn about various forms and techniques used in mediation, as well as the opportunity to practice their mediation skills in friendly competition with other students from around the world. Our tournaments are unique in that we train and require students to compete both as mediators and advocates.

Mediators are judged on their ability to work together with their co-mediator in addition to their listening skills, their ability to help that advocates and clients see the strengths and weaknesses of their cases, their ability to stay positi ve and professional, and their ability to help guide the parties to a resolution of the dispute that brought them to mediation.

Advocates and clients are judged on their ability to present their case, to articulate their strengths and weaknesses, and to work with the mediators toward a solution while also meeting their needs and interests.

The four top teams in each category go through to a final round. Awards are given for team performances and individual performances.

Our competitions are attended by schools from South East Asia, Eastern and Western Europe, North America, Russia, and many other parts of the world. It is a unique gathering of the leading academics, practitioners, and the brightest young legal minds the world has to offer.

In addition to receiving world class, training, delivered by some of the leading experts in the ADR field, teams will  have the opportunity to network with students and faculty from all over the world.
