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?’

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’
