Dispute Resolution Processes: A Sampler of the Spectrum

July 18 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

In-Person: 3rd Floor, Law Society Building, 196-198 Water Street OR Online: Via Zoom

Seminar Overview
Dispute resolution processes are now recognized as mainstream processes, as opposed to alternative processes, that take pressure off the courts and increase access to justice. Duties to use dispute resolution processes are incorporated into legislation and lawyers’ Codes of Ethics. The spectrum of processes ranges from collaborative negotiation to mediation, med-arb, and arbitration before arriving at the adversarial end of the spectrum – litigation.

Six presentations will explore current themes in the practice of dispute resolution across various fields of law while highlighting how dispute resolution processes take pressure off the courts, as well as provide a cost-effective and deeper level of satisfaction to clients:

  1. “Unconscious Bias in Dispute Resolution: A Primer” by Pia Hundal  LL.B, LL.M.
  2. “An Indigenous Lawyer’s work in Dispute Resolution” by Shayne Mcdonald Q.C., B.A, M.B.A., LL.B.
  3. “Introducing the Trauma Informed Dispute Resolution Toolbox” by Jonathan Tieman LL.B, LL.M
  4. “Power Imbalances, Abuse and Coercion:  Substantive Learning on How To Identify And Respond To Issues” by Mina Vaish, LL.M., B. Comm, AccFM
  5. “Med-Arb, Evaluative Mediation, and Other Cost-Saving Alternatives to Litigation: the Case for Adjudicator-led Mediation” by Amanda Rogers LL.B., LL.M.
  6. “Access to Alternative Justice:  An Alberta Perspective”. By Marilyn D. Slawinsky LL.M., Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta
