Collaborative Practice Workshop 


Collaborative Practice is an increasingly popular way to resolve disputes without going to court. It emphasises interdisciplinary problem solving, negotiation and empowerment and can involve lawyers working with lawyers or other professionals trained in Collaborative Practice and their clients to respectfully resolve disputes.
This process is ideal for people who want to resolve their differences themselves and thus, stay out of court. It can add new dimensions to your skills and the services you offer your clients. And for your clients, a new way of settling issues guided by quality legal and other advice.
Learn About: 
  • The Collaborative Approach
  • The Paradigm Shift
  • The Collaboration Contract
  • Interest Based Negotiation
  • Communication Skills
  • Advocacy Issues 
Who should attend:
Increasingly professionals outside of the legal profession are seeing the advantages in working with each other and their clients to successfully resolve disputes.  This workshop is suitable for legal practitioners interested in Alternative Dispute Resolution.
