Presenter's Profile:
Mr. Edward Poon

I obtained LLB in 2004 from the University of Nottingham.  I obtained PCLL in 2005 from HKU.  I was called to the Bar in 2006.  I was one of those who designed the HKU PCLL personal injuries course in 2008 - 2009.  I was accredited as a general mediator in 2011 by HKIAC.  I obtained Masters in Counselling in 2012 from the University of Monash.  I received family mediation training from the Family Welfare Society.  I was accredited as a family mediator in 2013 by HKIAC.  I am a general and family mediator of the HKMAAL.  I am an editor of the LexisNexis Dispute Resolution module.  I am married with 2 kids.

As a barrister in 601 Dina House, I am often instructed to work on general civil and personal injuries cases.  I am also regularly instructed to conduct criminal trials and appeals.  As a mediator, I stay mindful to the legal and psychological aspects of the case.  People become angry or depressed due to legal disputes.  I think psychotherapeutic techniques are very helpful.
