Thank you for making ADR Congress India 2010 a success.
It was a pleasure to see you there and we hope to see you again next year. Our forthcoming legal conference is scheduled for April 2011. If you want to stay updated with details of that and future legal conferences please email me at email@example.com with your contact details and I will ensure you are kept posted about all the new ideas and content we will be incorporating for our future events.
And do mention how you would like to get involved next year, either as a speaker, sponsor, exhibitor or participant.
These are exciting times if you are involved in the dynamic and testing world of ADR in India. The government has been spearheading reforms to give ADR a push and this created space for much to be debated, discussed, thrashed out and understood.
Union Minister for Law and Justice, Veerappa Moily, speaking about the Consultation Paper on India’s Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996, made the government’s stand and intent adequately clear when he announced that:
This is no mean task!
The 1996 Act, although modelled along international standards, has so far proved to be insufficient in meeting the needs of the business community, including foreign investors, for the speedy and impartial resolution of disputes in India. As India emerges as a major economic player, the Ministry has recommended changes to the existing Act with a view to promote institutional arbitration and restrict curial intervention.
Even as the Consultation Paper awaits being tabled in the Parliament, we at, The Ideas Exchange, through our independent research understood your need to stay up to speed with the nitty-gritty’s of the complexities ADR involves, the transformation underway in India and the impact of these changes on your business.
The ADR Congress India 2010, congregated over 100 senior advocates, arbitrators, mediators, judges, in-house counsel and members from ADR institutions on a single platform to engage, share and imbibe lessons from one another and discuss some of the most pertinent ADR challenges of today.
