Vasil Kisil & Partners has reported that Senior Associate Pavlo Byelousov spoke at the Second Ukrainian Law School on Alternative Dispute Resolution.
The program was jointly organized by the Coordination Council of Young Lawyers of Ukraine under the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Bar Association (UBA), and the National Aviation University, with the support of the Engarde Law Firm and the Students League of the Ukrainian Bar Association.
According to VKP, "the event attracted young lawyers and law students of various national higher educational institutions interested in the topic of alternative dispute resolution and, in particular, mediation." Byelousov was an invited speaker and gave a master class on "Advantages of mediation in comparison with other methods of conflict resolution", and allowed the participants an opportunity to ask practical questions on specified topics.
During his speech, Byelousov analyzed Ukrainian realities of dispute resolution in the context of court/arbitration and pretrial procedure, and outlined the prospects for the use of mediation in Ukraine and the conditions necessary for the development of the institution. In the final discussion he concluded that "the main component of mediation success is and will remain the maturity of the company and its awareness of such an instrument to resolve the dispute, as well as the willingness of the parties involved to find a mutually acceptable solution and execute it."
