Arbitration and Mediation Center
Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BTSO) takes pride in being the first in Turkey to establish the Arbitration and Mediation Center, aiming to swiftly resolve legal issues in the business world before resorting to the courts.
The center encourages the business community to resort to mediation in legal disputes, thereby preventing time and reputation losses in the commercial relationships of our members.
Bursa became the first city globally to provide Turkish-language training in arbitration. In collaboration with the International Court of Arbitration, the only institution worldwide providing accredited training and Uludağ University, Bursa has become a center for training arbitration arbitrators and lawyers in Turkey. The project also introduced advanced mediation training.
Following the completion of 'Arbitration Arbitrator' and 'Arbitration Attorney' training programs, BTSO, in collaboration with Uludağ University, launched the 'Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods Master's Program.' In November 2018, through a new protocol, BTSO extended the opportunity for graduates of this program to obtain an internationally recognized diploma as part of inter-institutional cooperation.
