Have you heard about “Med-Arb”? In Med-Arb, the “med-arbitrator” first attempts to help the disputing parties work out an agreement in a mediator’s role, but should mediation fail, the med-arbitrator can then assume the role of an arbitrator and render a binding decision. This course will take you through the key issues and elements of this innovative and exciting dispute resolution technique. You will explore the advantages and disadvantages of med-arb, review relevant med-arb caselaw, and practise the skills required for the med-arb process.
Join us and add another dispute resolution tool into your toolkit today!
After taking this course, you will be able to:
- understand the qualities and skills required for a med-arb process
- assess whether med-arb is an appropriate dispute resolution tool for your files
