Meet Prof. Apoorvi Shrivastava, Assistant Dean (Academics), as well as Faculty Chair, Centre of ADR, IFIM Law School.
Ma’am is an Accredited Arbitrator from Charted Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) and is a Member of the Young International Arbitration Group by the London Court of International Arbitration. Ma’am is a zealous explorer, learner, and trainer in the world of Alternate Dispute Resolution and has been a part of various movements and events related to it.
“Obviously, not everyone’s priorities are the same; in an environment that is diverse, conflicts should occur. Conflicts are normal but resolving them is yet to be normalized. The gap between the possibilities of mediation and its current practice is huge, It is now up to us to discover those spaces and fill them in wisely.
I see the YCM Bangalore chapter as a breakthrough in the students’ understanding of conflict resolution. As YCM’s tagline goes, ‘YOU CAN RESOLVE IT’ (this gives me an adrenaline rush every single time!), everything small and big can be sorted through mediation. I am super excited and glad to be a part of the team.”
Get. Set. Let’s mediate!
Chanchal Chaturvedi is the Research Lead in the IFIM-YCM team.
She is currently pursuing the 2nd year of her BBA LLB degree from IFIM Law School, Bangalore.
She is keen, and enthusiastic, and is immensely filled with a “stay positive” attitude.
Her favorite way of learning is through researching as researching not only helps her find answers to the questions, she was looking for but also so much more.
Chanchal is passionate about learning the nuances of the ADR mechanisms as she believes that dispute prevention is a well-deserved necessity. She wants to build a future where she can help dispute resolution in such a manner that allows individuals to maintain their relations intact in the developing world.
I recently discovered my interest in ADR and just as I was in a position where I was attaining a plethora of knowledge from being a member of my college’s center for ADR, I found myself searching for more opportunities that would give me the chance to get my hands on more practical experience in the field of ADR as a law student.
One of the things that I realized then was the sheer scarcity of opportunities to train law students for ADR in India. That is just when IFIM shook hands with YCM for the IFIM-YCM collaboration, this really opened our windows to external formal training in Mediation and even expert guidance.
The IFIM-YCM collaboration is definitely going to be a stepping stone towards creating law students seasoned and trained in the nuances of Mediation and dispute resolution and we are hoping that through the commencement of the YCM Bengaluru Chapter we will be able to spread this light of ADR training to whichever law student in Bangalore seeks for it.
Here’s what your colleagues and fellow educators have to say about YCM and YCM Chapters on their campuses.
