New family law arbitration course to use interactive video software
The National Family Law Arbitration Course, which will run over six days in February and March, will introduce participants to the skills, processes and procedures needed for the arbitration of family law disputes in Canada.
The arbitration course utilizes video conference software that enables highly interactive engagement and offers breakout rooms. Registrants will actively participate in class discussions, individual exercises and group exercises.
The course, organized by John-Paul Boyd of John-Paul Boyd Arbitration Chambers in Alberta and British Columbia, Lawrence Pinsky of Taylor McCaffrey LLP in Manitoba and Lorne Wolfson of Torkin Manes LLP in Ontario, gives participants the chance to learn from experienced family law lawyers with arbitration practices in these provinces. Senator Murray Sinclair will also discuss Indigenous traditions and the arbitration of legal disputes, superior court judges from Alberta and Ontario will address the role of the court in arbitration processes, and mental health professionals will explore the effects of domestic violence.
