Professional Certificate in Restorative Justice
The Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates (SCMA) in association with the Nigerian Bar Association Institute of Continuing Education (ICLE) presents a 2 Day Online Certificate training on Restorative Justice. This intensive programme which has the African Forum for Restorative Justice (AFRJ) as Technical Partners is facilitated by a robust faculty inclusive of a High Court Judge, a Chief Magistrate, a Professor of Criminology and a PhD holder in Law amongst many others
The Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates in Nigeria (SCMA Nigeria) was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee under the Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the year 2014. It is a subsidiary of the Standing Conference of Mediation Advocates (SCMA) the UK.
SCMA, its website and education programme, and its member fraternity are aimed at lawyers, accountants, surveyors and construction professionals, property and H.R. professionals, trade union representatives, local government officers and others who represent clients in mediation in all its forms, including negotiation, dispute avoidance and collaborative bargaining. It is not only for “first-timers” needing to learn about the basics of mediation very quickly, particularly as to what they should expect and how they should prepare, but also for those more seasoned advocates wishing to specialize independently in mediation advocacy and who want to develop the particular skills that it requires.
In the present legal landscape, it is essential for all those who appear at mediation, be they lawyers or other professionals, to have a good understanding of the process. This website is aimed at helping all those involved, and who may wish then to become SCMA members accredited to the SCMA as registered mediation advocates and utilize the SCMA Standards and Competencies in Mediation Advocacy as a device by which they, their clients and others measure the proficiency of their practice in this field.
