Mediate First

Welcome to my blog! You may probably be aware that IDAR Office of the Department of Justice (DoJ) has set up accounts in different social media platforms so that you can receive our news on mediation promptly and conveniently.

Last Friday, DoJ organized the biennial “Mediate First” Pledge Event 2019 with the theme “Mediate First: Unlocking Potential”. It was a very fruitful and vibrant event with discussions including sports mediation and deal mediation, as well as mediation experience sharing among certain local industries. Mediation enables different parties to resolve disputes in an amicable and constructive manner. With the help of mediators, parties concerned may reach a mutually acceptable solution. In the days ahead, we will continue to actively pursue and formulate how to capitalise on Hong Kong's strengths in mediation established over the years.

At the same time, we will endeavor to make the best out of the information and communications technology by establishing diversified channels to disseminate our messages to stakeholders and the public directly. By keeping you abreast of our new initiatives and key issues, I hope it will bring us closer in upholding the rule of law, sharing ideas for the promotion and development of Hong Kong’s legal and dispute resolution services.
