OUR HISTORY (2017 - 2020)


As the competition preceding the Singapore Convention on Mediation 2019, the International Mediation Singapore Competition 2019 welcomed law students from all around the world. It was the first international mediation competition to be held in Singapore. The event received a wide amount of press coverage, not limited to the Straits Times, the Singapore Convention Website, and press coverage by the Singapore Ministry of Law.

We are pleased to announce that every team walked away with a medal (gold, silver and bronze) for the categories of (1) Mediation Advocacy, and (2) Mediation.


The CDRC Executive Committee had the great honour of attending the signing (with many honoured guests such as Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Mr Stephen Mathias - Assistant Secretary-General for Legal Affairs with the United Nations, and our Minister for Home Affairs and Law - Minister Shanmugam) and witnessing the naming of the Aranda Singapore Convention on Mediation.


The Mediation Advocacy Competition 2019 was Singapore’s first dedicated, local mediation competition. The Collaborative Dispute Resolution Committee welcomed 48 competition teams (each team consisting of a pair) from the National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University, and Singapore University of Social Sciences. The Preliminary Round was held on the 27th of February 2019, with the Semi-Finals and Finals held on the 8th of March 2019.

4 teams rose to the finals with Ahvineesh Nanoo & Tay Shi Ying, Victoria taking first place. The remaining 3 teams were placed in the following order:

1st Runners Up: Kim Haeyoung & Wee Su-Ann 2nd Runners Up: Arjit Pandey & Ong Hui Wen 3rd Runners Up: Ang Kai Le & Yeo Jing Wen


CDRC successfully completed its first leadership transition in 2019 and a new executive committee took on the reins of the CDRC's operations, comprising of Levin Lin, Louis Chew, Yeo Jing Wen, Isabella Tan, Ang Kai Le, Lim Pin Xiu and Samuel Teo. CDRC's first website was also launched in 2019.

FOUNDING (2017 -- 2018)

Launched in 2017, CDRC was initiated by Lee Yew Boon, Liu Siew Rong, Enoch Soh, Jospeh Lim and Lim Ker Jia. The pioneering batch of exco members planned and laid out CDRC's mission in the years to come, setting up the foundation for future generations to promote the rise of alternative dispute resolution methods in our community.SINGAPORE CONVENTION ON MEDIATION 2019
