'Traits' of the Commercial Mediator (working title)


Professor Loukas Mistelis

Summary of research:

This research was conceived to identify the psychological traits inherent in practising commercial mediators across the UK. The methodology is designed to elicit a point in time profile that aims to contribute to a greater understanding of practice and future training needs within one of the main developing areas of the legal process. Utilising the psychometric tool ORPHEUS this research is a reflection of the lack of empirical data in one of the contentious areas of debate within the field of mediation.


Aaron Hudson-Tyreman was admitted to the Bar in 2006, and obtained postgraduate law degrees in the area of law in 2004, 05, 06 and 2010 respectively. From 1988 to 2000 he gained considerable leadership experience as an Officer in the British Army. During this period he saw active service in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Kosovo. Since leaving the services he has gained recognition as a conscientious and committed professional who continues to bring forward thinking through thought leadership. He has very quickly moved from Senior lecturer status to Assistant Director of the prestigious Centre of Construction Law and Dispute Resolution, Kings College London. Having won numerous awards and scholarships he has maintained a commitment to publishing works that are recognised as having a strong public interest focus. As a public speaker he has developed a reputation for clear thinking and delivery whilst sharing the platform with high profile and well-respected practitioners in the legal field. His concurrent contributions to judicial publications have cemented his standing as a reliable and focused individual prepared to work within time-limited research projects. As Director of Research and Development of a global organisation he has lead on the challenging development of global governance and the restructuring of the organisations regulatory provision. This work has led to his influence in the field of regulation of secondary professional practice and as a leading contributor to the research development within the Civil Mediation Council (CMC). He has recently been awarded a prestigious scholarship towards his PhD research at Queen Mary, University of London.
