Conference description:
Continuing Legal Education Society of BC (CLEBC), Mediate BC, and CoRe Conflict Resolution Society are co-hosting a unique one-day conflict resolution conference built around the theme "Reimagining Space(s)."

As we transition from a world of work-from-home orders and increased use of online tools for conflict resolution to a new understanding of where and how conflict emerges and can be addressed, conflict resolution professionals are reflecting on new best practices. We are re-examining assumptions about the value of face-to-face mediation and seeking to better understand the ways in which we can combine in-person and online tools to support clients in conflict.

However, the disruptions in our practices over the past two years have also led to reflection on broader questions around conflict resolution spaces. How do we create inclusive spaces? How do we make space for self-represented clients?

Invited presenters will lead discussions about transforming workplaces and workplace relationships, making space for a new generation of collaborative professionals, public works in public spaces, creating ethical spaces, and even outer space!

We anticipate a rich and engaging range of topics in response to our Call for Presentations and encourage your proposals!

In addition to the one-day conference (held online), attendees can select to join a number of related events, including half-day skills workshops, virtual and in-person walking tours, an opening reception, online and in-person meet-ups, networking opportunities, and more.

Optional post-conference workshops will offer small group opportunities for applied skills training. These workshops will be offered either in person or online and have very limited attendance numbers, so please register early! Post-conference workshops are not included in the conference registration fee.

This course will meet the minimum 6 hours of Dispute Resolution CPD required by the Law Society of BC for family dispute resolution professionals.

Conference sessions will be recorded to allow participants to view (or re-view) sessions that run concurrently for a month after the conference. Should you watch all of the sessions: 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).

If you view only the sessions offered in real time this course will include a minimum of 1 hour pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management.

Mediate BC Roster mediators and CoRe subscribers will receive 20% off the full regular course registration fee. Please contact Customer Service to register.
