Arbitration is one method of dispute resolution and is likely to continue to play an increasing role in our justice system, requiring a special skill set and raising unique challenges for all those involved.

OsgoodePD in co-operation with the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA), offers this essential guide to the impact of the new law on your workplace.

What You’ll learn

the procedural issues in arbitration and how the decision to arbitrate is made and why?

the ethical issues at play in the professional practice of arbitration and the skills to face them transparently and thoughtfully

your role as an effective advocate from preparation to problem-solving to documenting the settlement and beyond

a better understanding of the court’s attitudes towards judicial review

the creative uses of the arbitration process: going beyond the do’s and don’ts

Developed as part of a unique partnership, this joint ADRIO/FDRIO/OsgoodePD program will provide a forum for discussion focusing on broadening the skills of those currently working in arbitration and provide a wealth of information for those contemplating a career in arbitration or those who simply work in dispute resolution and need a grounding of the concepts.
