Singapore International Dispute Resolution Academy (SIDRA) Director Nadja Alexander (who is also Professor of Practice at the SMU School of Law) has been ranked as a Global Elite Thought Leader in mediation in the 2020 edition of Who's Who Legal. When asked on what advice she would give to younger practitioners, Nadja says:
"Think broadly about entry points to dispute resolution. Many mediators add related roles to their profile such as conflict management professional, dispute systems designer, conflict coach, facilitator, mediation advocate, negotiation adviser, dispute resolution strategist or adviser, collaborative lawyer and so on. Mediation-trained professionals are reinventing and broadening their role to encompass a range of interventions beyond that of a “traditional” mediator working with two or more parties to help them resolve their dispute. This is a great approach for younger practitioners entering the field." The link to the entry in Who's Who Legal can be found here.
