The Institute of Chattered Mediators and Conciliators, ICMC, has announced the creation of Online Dispute Resolution, ODR, platform.

In a statement made available to TheNigeriaLawyer signed by its President, Agada John Elachi, the Institute says the initiative is part of its vision to create opportunities and platforms for professional practice of mediation and have its members enhance their economic well-being and improve their professional skills.

Distinguished members, on behalf of the Executive committee, we thank you for Your devotion to the Institute.

It therefore announced that eligible members will be appointed into the panel of neutrals for the ODR Platforms.

The statement reads in part, “As Your President, I am humbled by the dedication of many of Our members who pay their dues, attend branch meetings and other activities of the Institute, and remain committed to the practice of mediation.

“One of the major visions of this Exco is to create opportunities and platforms for the professional practice of mediation and therefore have Our members enhance their economic well-being and improve their professional skills.

“For months now, we have worked assiduously through the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) department of the Institute to design, create and establish by reach and dissemination the largest platform for the filing and resolution of disputes virtually.

“It is with great pleasure that I am happy to announce the creation and take-off of the ICMC ONLINE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PLATFORM.

“The ICMC ODR Platform is designed to process and attend to not less than thirty thousand (30,000) dispute filings within the first year alone.

“The ICMC ODR Platform will ultimately have the biggest PANEL OF NEUTRALS Body in the history of Nigeria attending to and resolving more disputes annually than the combination of many dispute resolution centres put together.

According to the Institute, only full members with up to date annual dues are entitled to be appointed for ay of the positions

“Also, to be advertised is the position of the ADMINISTRATOR of the ICMC ODR Platform. The remuneration will be very attractive and commensurate to the role. The advert for this very important position of the ADMINISTRATOR will be out on the 26TH OF MAY, 2022.
