Laurence Boulle, Professor of
Law in the Thomas More Academy of Law in North Sydney, will be awarded the
first Fellowship of the Australian Dispute Resolution Association.
The Fellowship is a new
category of award for those who have made outstanding contributions to
alternative dispute resolution in the country. It recognises 26 years of
activity in this area, including teaching, publishing, training, policy work
and consultancies. Laurence has also practised as a mediator in several states
over the past 20 years.
During 2015 Laurence has
co-authored a New Zealand edition of his text Mediation: Skills and
Techniques (LexisNexis, NZ), written a chapter in a Hong Kong based text on
Mediation in Asia and co-authored an article on the negotiation of
coal-seam gas arrangements, published in the Journal of Energy and Natural
Resources. He also published a
chapter in a book on The Rise of BRICS in the Global Political Economy,
published by Edward Elgar (UK, 2015).
He serves as a director of the
Mediator Standards Board, is on the World Bank Panel of conciliators for
investment disputes, and is the current LEADR Fellow for 2014-6. He
also does volunteer work for JusticeConnect in Sydney.
The Fellowship will be awarded
during a dinner at the NSW Law Society on 30 June.
