A look at the alternative dispute resolution focus group sesssion

Lawyers from throughout the B.C. Interior gathered on June 9 in Vancouver for a focus group session (centre) on alternative dispute resolution. Participants looked at what is working well for lawyers in ADR, and what is not, what is missing and whether new rules or rule changes are needed to support the integrity of the system. The Law Society ADR Working Group, chaired by Deborah Lynne Zutter, sponsored three focus group sessions and expects to report out by early Fall. Left: Jerry McHale chats with Gordon Mamen.
