Mediation in Sport - Success stories from NZ

Mediation in Sport - Success stories from NZ

Mediation is often a suitable means to resolve disputes that arise in sport. The reality, within the UK particularly, is that it is not utilised, or even considered, as often as perhaps it could or should be.

Mediation can offer timely and cost-effective resolution for many disputes, avoiding the need for arbitration or expensive litigation through the courts. It can be particularly useful and effective as a tool for early resolution of issues and where relationships need to continue, such as where a problem arises between an athlete and a coach.

In association with Immediation NZ, we will be hosting a seminar to better understand the mediation process and to reflect on when and how it should be considered as a means to resolve disputes. The event will take place remotely on Tuesday 2 July 2024 between 10:00 and 11:00 am (UK time).

Immediation is an online dispute resolution platform, providing early intervention mediation for sport disputes in New Zealand. Lucy Brittain, a lawyer and dispute resolution specialist, will explain how mediation is integrated into the NZ sport system and will provide examples of how it has successfully resolved various issues that have arisen.

The event will cover:

  • The creation of the SRCMS
  • High Level Statistics
  • Observations
  • Themes
  • Aspects of sports disputes that make mediation more effective
  • Anonymised case examples 

The event will also provide an opportunity for you to ask any questions.

This is an online event and free of charge. The registration link can be found below.
