Led by Mtre Miville Tremblay, the 2018 edition of the Round Table on Participatory Justice focuses on current issues presented by high-level speakers and is provided at an affordable price.

  • Confidentiality in mediation — Developments and tips (1.5 hours long)
    Confidentiality is a fundamental aspect in dispute prevention and resolution. Can the use of discussions within this framework to prove the existence of a transaction jeopardize the decision to resort to mediation?

    After an overview of the concept of confidentiality in mediation presented by Mtre Miville Tremblay, Mtre Suzanne Guillet and Mtre Max Mendelsohn will join him for a discussion led by the Honourable François Rolland on the subject, and share their best practices.
  • The place of law in mediation — What is it exactly? (1.5 hours long)
    Mediation is an alternative method of settling disputes. While the judicial process is based on evidence and the rule of law, the purpose of mediation is not to model the settlement solution on the judicial solution. That said, should we avoid bringing up the court option as a possibility during mediation?

    After having introduced the subject, Mtre Dominique Bourcheix will join a panel of lawyers from different schools of thought in a discussion about this thorny issue, all in light of developments in mediation.
  • A snapshot of participatory justice — The Mediation Clinic at the Université de Montréal (1 hour long)
    This component, which allows participants to discover the different formulas used to present participatory justice, will focus this year on the Université de Montréal’s Mediation Clinic.

    Mtre Hélène de Kovachich will present the different aspects of the clinic, a free service for the general public, which also provides experiential learning for students and contributes to scientific research and the production of doctrine.

    The mission of this clinic, created by the resolve of various players to support the implementation of the Accessing Law and Justice (ADAJ) project, is to promote the use of mediation as a means of resolving disputes in order to facilitate access to justice.
  • Participating in justice in all its forms (1 hour long) — cancelled
  • Replacement Presentation (1 hour long) — to be confirmed

We look forward to seeing you on October 18!
