Join us for a future-focused, cross-border conference organized with partnering organizations including: Mediate BC, Mediate.com, CoRe Conflict Resolution Society, and the ADR Section of the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA). Scheduled during Conflict Resolution Week 2021, this conference will explore the wide range of ways in which individuals, organizations, and nations create artificial borders that lead to, intensify, and prolong conflict. Presenters will be drawn from both sides of the Canada/US border as we seek commonalities and opportunities for greater knowledge exchange across practice areas and lived experiences.
Come prepared for a wide-ranging exchange of ideas and perspectives on the ways in which lawyers and other conflict resolution professionals can break down patterns of dichotomous thinking that lead to intransigent conflict—whether in interpersonal conflict or in nation-to-nation conflict.
The event will kick off with an opening night presentation on Wednesday, October 20th at 6:00 pm followed by two full days of dynamic and engaging speakers.
In line with the conference theme of deconstructing artificial borders, the conference format itself will challenge the divide between virtual and in-person conferences. The entire conference will be available to all attendees online and recorded segments will allow participants to view (or re-view) sessions that run concurrently for two weeks. As a consequence, the entire 32+ hours of content will be available to everyone: you do not have to choose between learning about the mediation of environmental disputes, approaches to trauma-informed conflict resolution practice, Indigenous law, and the impacts of geopolitical and metaphorical borders on a wide range of practice areas. You will have access to all topics that interest you.
We will be offering Mediate BC Roster members and CoRe members a discount of 20% off the full fee. Contact Customer Service to receive the 20% discount.
This course will meet the minimum 6 hours of Dispute Resolution CPD required by the Law Society of BC for family dispute resolution professionals.
Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 18 hours (will include a minimum of 2 hours pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
