The following was originally posted on the University of Stratclyde website:

The Law School is delighted to announce the appointment of Charlie Irvine, Chair of the Scottish Mediation Network, as a Visiting Professor from 1 September 2011.

Charlie Irvine is already a Visiting Lecturer at Strathclyde Law School and an Adjunct Professor at John Marshall Law School in Chicago.  He has played a lead role (along with Dr Bryan Clark) in developing the PgCert and now MSc in Mediation and Conflict Resolution at Strathclyde.  Charlie will lead the new MSc which is about to be launched this autumn.  It is an exciting interdisciplinary programme focusing on both the theory and practical skills training in mediation and other forms of alternative (ie non-court) dispute resolution (ADR).  Charlie has also been instrumental in developing a joint Strathclyde- John Marshall Law School mediation summer school which has now had two very successful years.  He has also published on mediation in both professional and refereed journals and has just been invited to be a regular contributor to the Kluwer International Mediation blog.

Charlie’s role will also encompass lecturing on Alternative Dispute Resolution to LLB students, developing a Mediation elective for the new Diploma in Professional Legal Practice and providing support on mediation for the Law School’s award-winning Clinic.

Welcoming the appointment, Professor Mark Poustie, Head of the Law School said, ‘I am delighted that the University has appointed Charlie Irvine as a Visiting Professor.  This is appropriate recognition for Charlie’s very significant input into the Law School over the last few years and in particular his leading role, along with Dr Bryan Clark, in developing the Pg Certificate and now the MSc in Mediation and Conflict Resolution. The appointment also recognises Charlie’s status within the mediation profession.  My colleagues and I look forward to continuing to work with Charlie in the future.’
