Collaborative practice is the practice of law without recourse to the court system. It is a dispute resolution process in which the parties and their lawyers enter into a contract (the “Participation Agreement”) to resolve a dispute without resorting to often costly and emotionally taxing litigation.
Collaborative practice and mediation for family matters have moved into an online environment during the pandemic. So how does this work? Join Fiona Kirkman, Principal, Kirkman Family Law and she will take you through:
- The benefits and challenges of online vs face-to-face dispute resolution
- How lawyers can prepare effectively for mediation and collaborative practice matters
- Tips for participating in mediating and collaborative practice matters remotely
- Legal tech tools to assist in the resolution of family law disputes in a post COVID-19 environment, including a brief introduction to FamilyProperty
