The Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates Podcast

UK’s highly entertaining Charon QC is today talking to barrister, Andrew Goodman. Andrew, of 1 Chancery Lane, convener of the Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates.

‘We look at mediation advocacy and the work of the Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates:How does the role of the advocate fit in the current mediation market? – Is representation in mediation really necessary – doesn’t it undermine the idea of party autonomy? – Can mediation representation properly be called ‘advocacy’? – What is the SCMA and how did it come into being? – What is your role/How many members does it have/What activities does it conduct/who is involved with it?’

Eavesdrop on that conversation here at this podcast

FYI
The Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates is a ‘multi disciplinary cross-professional membership trade organisation established to promote and deliver best practice and professional excellence in mediation advocacy through individual and corporate training and commercial activities’.

The Forum for Mediation Advocacy is ‘aimed at lawyers, accountants, property and HR professionals, trade union representatives and other advocates who represent clients in mediation’
