What others have said about this course: “As a solicitor and mediator, having studied this act numerous times I thought I knew all I needed to know about the legislation at this stage. I was proved wrong on this as it turns out. This course was impressive, the structure was well thought-out and the content was professionally delivered.” Mary Miles, Solicitor-Mediator For more testimonials, see Mediation-Act-2017
