Settlement: is the future with the judges?

A talk by HH Nicholas Chambers QC

26 November, London

There are no unicorns in this talk. In a diverse set of jurisdictions the role of the judge as a conciliator has been established as an integral part of case handling covering thousands of disputes and many millions of pounds.

The talk will look at the mechanisms of conciliation in Financial Dispute Resolution appointments, Employment Tribunals and the DJ CMCs described in the Briggs Report as well as the use in Germany of Conciliation Judges (Güterichter). We will consider why the different types of approach are successful in the areas in which they are used and the potential for their use elsewhere whether at Stage 2 of the new Online Court or in IP disputes.
