Welcome to the first episode of "See You Out Of Court", a brand spanking new podcast focusing on new ways to resolve disputes without burning vast amounts of money through the courts.
Following this podcast will inform you of all the options to resolve disputes without going to court, whether mediation, arbitration, adjudication, ombudsmen schemes and ,importantly, by the parties themselves.
One theme throughout this podcast will be how technology is designing and offering more effective, practical, speedier less costly and therefore more accessible ways to resolve disputes and in this way to experience justice.
Each podcast will feature new developments with interviews with experts in the field. It will be of interest to mediators, arbitrators, lawyers, any organisation such as insurance companies or others who deal with claims and disputes and of course the general public.
