We pleased to announce the establishment of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Law, Alternative and Innovative Methods (‘ICLAIM’), created in February 2017. The launch event was held at UCLan Cyprus on the 4th July 2017.

ICLAIM is an interdisciplinary not-for-profit Centre, which closely works with UCLan Cyprus on law in the real world, socio-legal issues and disputes arising in a transnational and interdisciplinary context, at all levels of the legal order and multi-level governance (international, European and national), utilising alternative and innovative methods. In particular, ICLAIM is concerned with:

the creation, application, implementation and enforcement of law
the settlement, mediation, negotiation, arbitration, resolution and other forms of dispute resolution.
ICLAIM’s first activity took place between the 5th-7th July in the form of an accredited conflict management and mediation skills course. The course was led by internationally recognised expert, Michael Doherty, a mediator/trainer in the field of conflict resolution. Participants included academics, lawyers and entrepreneurs from Cyprus and abroad.
