IIAM is taking up an ambitious project of setting up Community Mediation Clinics in Indian Villages. As stated by our Chairman, Hon.ble Mr. Justice M.N.

We are grateful that our initiative of IIAM Community Mediation Service has been endorsed by the International Mediation Institute at the Hague. In this edition of  "The Indian Arbitrator", we have made a request to all public spirited persons and institutions to support us in this initiative of social transition to make our world a safe, sustainable, peaceful and prosperous place to live.

 International Arbitration
Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR is becoming more popular with both small and large businesses around the world as the logical choice to settle disputes between themselves and their business partners.
International arbitration is the alternative for businesses and individuals to settle their disputes instead of going to a court of law.
