ADR Training


Shanna Quinn has been providing mediation training to lawyers, social scientists and other professionals since 1996 both domestically and internationally. 

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Training
Shanna Quinn has had extensive experience as a Mediator, Trainer and Coach, working with such organisations as Bond University, the University of Queensland, the Queensland University of Technology, the Hong Kong Law Society, the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, the Social Welfare Department of Hong Kong and the Construction Development Board of Malaysia.  

The success of any mediation is significantly influenced by the skills of the mediator. Shanna’s lengthy experience as a mediator and trainer and her multi-disciplinary background enable her to design and conduct courses which incorporate the soft skills of a social scientist and hard skills required of a lawyer.


“I have known Shanna as a joint teacher at many courses in Australia and Hong Kong and as a colleague in the mediation movement. Shanna is a unique individual. She is an excellent teacher, with high energy, a good sense of humour and a vast knowledge of theory coupled with many illustrations from her extensive clinical practice. Shanna is an excellent communicator and is sensitive to diverse needs (emotional, cross-cultural and educational). Shanna has an outstanding reputation in the Family Court and amongst specialists in the legal profession as an expert witness, child’s representative and mediator.”
