Day-long training on Alternative Dispute resolution held on 30th January, 2018 at BIAC

A day–long training programme on “Alternative Dispute resolution” was organized by Bangladesh International Arbitration Centre (BIAC) on Tuesday, 30th January, 2018 at its multi-purpose room at Panthapath, Dhaka. The course highlighted ADR in Bangladesh Laws, BIAC dispute settlement clause – “Mediation” & “Arbitration”, stages of mediation and arbitration, ADR under Civil Procedure Code & Artha Rin Adalat Ain.
To ease congestion of cases at every level of our court system and to get around complex court procedures, Bangladesh Government has undertaken a number of measures to expedite disposal of cases. As a part of their effort, a number of significant enactments have also been passed in recent years incorporating provisions making ADR as an alternative method of dispute resolution. But to get results of these changes in our laws we require trained ADR professionals in the country. This training programme, organized by BIAC, will help a long way in creating a pool of ADR professionals in the country.
Barrister Khaled Hamid Chowdhury and Barrister Nabil Ahsan were the trainers, while trainees from different organizations, Banks, Law Chambers, Universities and private companies participated in the programme. Certificates were distributed among the trainees after successful completion of the programme.
