CEDR, the London-based ADR organisation, is running a survey: “What do Corporate Counsel think of Mediation?” Here’s CEDR’s description of the survey:
“The questionnaire – which is for in-house counsel in both the private and public sectors – includes questions about your personal experience of mediation, as well as your views on the outsourcing of cases and opportunities for collaborative working within dispute resolution. Your responses will be collated with others and will be made available in the early spring.”
As it happens, my partner Axel Bösch is working on a joint project with Bucerius Law School in Hamburg with a similar focus, for which they conducted extensive interviews with in-house counsel across Germany. First findings were presented at Bucerius’ 2012 Conflict Management Coference.
