Tara Ollapally is a member of the MediateIndia! Advisory Board.
Tara co-founded Centre for Advanced Mediation Practice to promote a ‘user friendly’ framework of dispute resolution which facilitates greater autonomy, is cheaper, less formal, procedurally simple and available with minimal delay. Conflict, a natural consequence of human relationships, has the propensity to escalate. The mark of an advanced society is its ability to manage conflict such that it does not escalate and allows disputants to problem solve and find quick, meaningful, win-win solutions.
Tara’s commitment at CAMP is to provide collaborative dispute resolution as a meaningful option for businesses and individuals. Through a thriving mediation culture, she hope’s they can address the Access to Justice issue our legal system faces and work towards gaining that mark of an advanced society.
Tara is an international lawyer of 18 years who started her career in human rights law in the United States. She also worked in Immigration and Asylum Law while in the United States. Since moving back to India in 2011 she has been working on mediation. She has trained in mediation at Harvard Law School and many other international institutions. She is a graduate of University Law College and received her Masters in Law from Columbia Law School.
