This conference will highlight the benefits of arbitration in Scotland especially in the field of personal injury. The Faculty has developed a new and innovative approach, which has attracted favourable responses from those in the political, business, academic and legal fields.

The Faculty currently operates a well-established arbitration facility – Faculty of Advocates Arbitration – under which it provides arbitration services in many areas as diverse as commercial, family and agricultural law. By adding a new personal injury arbitration service, the Faculty will be extending choice and offering new and exciting options in dispute resolution.

The Faculty is delighted to have the following speakers confirmed already: Rt. Hon. Lord Glennie; Margaret Mitchell MSP, Convenor of the Justice Committee, Scottish Parliament; Brandon Malone, Chair of the Scottish Arbitration Centre; Richard Farndale, President of the CIArb (Scotland); Elliott Geisinger, Head of International Arbitration, Schellenberg Wittmer Limited, Geneva; Robin Oldenstam, Head of Dispute Resolution, Mannheimer Swartling, Stockholm; Gillian Lemaire, Carmichael-Lemaire Limited, Paris and London; amongst others.
