A brave new world of personal injury practice in BC
(Original Course Date: April 25, 2019)
Who should attend: Personal injury litigators
Learning level: All levels
Beginning April 1, 2019, the BC Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) will have jurisdiction in motor vehicle accident personal injury disputes where there is a "minor injury." This means that disputes about benefits, damages, and liability up to $50,000 will come under the rubric of the CRT. Learn about the impact and processes of this new regime firsthand from the Chair of the CRT, Shannon Salter. At this comprehensive full-day course, you will learn about:
- the Solution Explorer—the CRT's front end legal information and self-help tool
- the process before scheduling a CRT hearing
- the CRT's dispute resolution process, forms, rules of practice, and rules about information and evidence
- the challenges and opportunities that the new CRT regime brings to personal injury lawyers
Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 6 hours (a minimum of 1 hour pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
Shannon Salter, Chair — Civil Resolution Tribunal, Vancouver
