Mock Mediation Event
The Scottish Land Commission and the Agricultural Law Association, with Scottish Mediation, invite you to this online mock mediation.
The event will be held in two parts on Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 December 2020 from 10 am-12:30 pm on both days.
About this Event
The in-person mock mediation training event that was scheduled for late March had to be postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, we have rescheduled this as an online event.
Designed for anyone interested in finding out how mediation works, what a mediation looks like, and how it can benefit them, the online event will take the form of a short video, which should be watched ahead of time, followed by a two-day webinar with a live discussion of the mock mediation and Q&A sessions with the participants. Those who had already signed up for the original date will be contacted with the details.
The mock mediation participants are not actors, but are all experts in their field. Christopher Nicolson (STFA Chairman) will be playing the role of tenant, supported by Hamish Lean and Tom Oates, and David Johnston (former SLE Chairman) will be acting as the landlord, supported by Heather Bruce and Mark Fogden. Pamela Lyall, mediator, and Lindsay Burley, mediator, Eskhill and Co, have been instructed as mediators and will work with the landlord and tenant to try to resolve a waygoing from an agricultural holding. Robin Burley, Eskhill and Co, will host the mock mediation and enable delegates to ask questions as the process unfolds.
