Product description

The objective of Mediation Theory and Practice in Hong Kong is firstly, to provide sufficient mediation theory; and secondly, to use the theory in context of local Hong Kong mediation practice. The foundation of this book is the theory of mediation and the different stages of a mediation process; and will discuss each stage's importance and function. While the theory mainly reflects the parties' and mediator's perspectives, the practical part of the book mainly refers to the lawyers' involvement in a mediation process. References will be made to Practice Directions, relevant Civil Procedure Rules, relevant case law and necessary agreements relevant to a mediation process.

"The discussion of theory has general validity in all jurisdictions where mediation is taught and practiced. And the bridging of theory across to the structure of practice in Hong Kong serves both to elucidate the theory and to present the requirements of practice in a form which will be of great value to academics, practitioners and beyond." Sir Laurence Street, AC, KCMG, QC
