Raising awareness on mediation and arbitration among tomorrow's professionals

The CMAP, an association under the law of 1901 created by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 1995, has been collaborating since its creation with universities, business schools, engineering schools, prestigious schools and law schools.

Because we believe that the development of mediation and arbitration requires a shift in mentalities, a change from the culture of litigation to the culture of consensus, the future generations of lawyers, business leaders, engineers, notaries, etc. must be made aware of the new conflict management tools.


To this end, CMAP mediators and arbitrators regularly speak to future users and/or prescribers of alternative dispute resolution methods.

In law universities and masters specialising in mediation and arbitration, in bar schools in Paris and the regions, in business schools (HEC, ESCP, ISC, etc.) at the Ecole Centrale, at Sciences Po Paris.

Do not hesitate to contact us to find out more or if you would like us to speak at your school.

Mediation competition

Each year, more than a hundred students compete in a series of simulated mediations, in which they play the role of mediator. The students are judged by professionals: two representatives of the business world, lawyers, magistrates, accountants playing the parties in conflict; and a third professional, a CMAP mediator, observing the process.
