What is IMW and what does Sama do?

Indian Mediation Week (IMW) is now in its sixth edition. Although India has over 4.5 crore cases pending (as of May 2022), litigation is still greatly preferred to mediation. The problem is that awareness of mediation is abysmally low. There exists an urgent need to promote mediation as an appropriate method of dispute resolution in India and it is in this context that IMW was born. The sole objective of IMW has been to grow awareness around mediation.

Sama is an Online Dispute Resolution Institution that has worked with over 42 enterprises, 7 states and resolved over 200,000 disputes online. By organizing IMW, Sama aims to bring mediation to the fore and raise awareness about online mediation while also recognizing the efforts of those who use mediation, ADR & ODR to resolve real cases for real people.

What are the networking opportunities?

At both events, in Mumbai and Bangalore, there will be several networking opportunities for lawyers and enterprises. These events are also being conducted at ideal locations for good conversations and meaningful discussions – Taj Lands End Hotel in Mumbai & Bangalore Creative Circus inBangalore. While you snack on delectable food and beverage, you will have ample time to hobnob with professionals in your industry, ODR practitioners, top Resolutionaries and with Team Sama!
