DU Law faculty with Delhi HC Mediation Centre organise Int’l Conference on Mediation


New Delhi, April 22 (ILNS): An International Conference on Mediation was organised virtually today by the Law Centre-II of the Faculty of Law, Delhi University in association with Samadhan, the Delhi HC Mediation Centre and Delhi School of Public Policy and Governance Centre under the action research project by Department of Justice, Ministry of Law and Justice, Government of India. Dr Ashutosh Mishra was the Director of the conference.

Addressing the inaugural session of the seconded conference on mediation, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad tackled the question as to why mediation is not successful in India.

He said the respect that the institution of judiciary commands, people tend to believe that their dispute would come to a closure, which might not be in the case of mediation. He said that there is still a need to reflect as to what has been the result out of mediation provisions enacted.

He insisted on setting up the Arbitration Council of India headed by Retd Supreme Court Judges and other eminent persons, who will be grading the Arbitral Institution of India, which will ultimately lead to a rush towards this path.

However, Justice Deepak Misra, former Chief Justice of India, described mediation as a collective craving for justice in a cost-effective manner. He said that every mediator must touch the nerve of the litigant and have tremendous patience as the old saying goes- “Every case has a face.” Towards the end, he suggested a periodical rigorous training for understanding the nuances of law and that the court should encourage mediation at any stage of litigation because the result of mediation metamorphosises the societal situation and establishes collective harmony.

Prof Dr PC Joshi , Vice Chancellor, University of Delhi acknowledging the challenging times of Covid and the faith of people on public institutions and the government, enumerated various benefits of mediation for the legal fraternity and the entire society. In the end, he encouraged reductions of pendencies in courts.

Prof Mahavir Singh Kalon ,Professor-In-Charge gave vote of thanks to all speakers and appreciated an effort made by Dr Ashutosh Mishra, Project Investigator of the Ministry for organising this conference to create awareness.
