Civil Mediation Council calls for nominations for the 2012 Lord Slynn Prize

Sunday, 9th September 2012

In 2009, following the death of the CMC President, Lord Slynn of Hadley, the CMC announced the creation of the annual Lord Slynn Prize. The prize is for the person who has, in the opinion of the Officers of the CMC, contributed most notably to the development of mediation in the United Kingdom. 

Last year’s winner, announced at the AGM, was awarded to Philip Naughton QC for his contribution to the development of mediation in the UK.

It is now open to members, and non-members, to nominate individuals for the 2012 Prize, to be announced and presented at the CMC’s AGM on 12th December 2012 in London. 

Nominations are invited from now until the end of October 2012 and should be submitted to the Registrar by email at registrar@civilmediation.org. Nominees do not have to be existing CMC Members. The closing date for nominations is therefore 31st October 2012. The CMC Officers will then meet in November to decide the winner. 

The award can reflect an individual’s specific act, activity, idea, or piece of work, or may reflect a more general contribution which may or may not be part of an ongoing commitment. In either case, however, the contribution must be considered by the Officers to be outstanding and worthy of specific recognition. 

The Prize is £500 together with life membership of the CMC. The Prize winner will be invited to the AGM for the presentation. 

The presentation each year will record the fact that the Prize was endowed by the Board of the CMC for five years to mark the passing of Lord Slynn of Hadley, first President of the CMC, a great jurist and voice for mediation.
