The training, which begins in November, aims to help barristers respond to the greater emphasis being placed on mediation in family practice.
Michael Lind, managing director of ADR Group, said: “Members of the Bar are experienced practitioners and well placed to play a direct and active role in the resolution of family conflict through mediation.”

Paul Mosson, head of member services at the Bar Council, said: “The number of significant changes affecting the legal profession has made it more important than ever for the Bar Council to provide top-quality, affordable training courses tailored to the Bar.”
