Developments in Saskatchewan suggest that we ought to be expanding our study of Family Dispute Resolution beyond ‘negotiation’. In 2019, Dispute Resolution will become mandatory in (all) family law disputes in Saskatchewan, including a spectrum of DR processes. Family lawyers will need to be better equipped than in the past, to advise their clients on the range of process options in these often complex matters. They will also need greater capacity to work in interdisciplinary and cross-cultural settings, to help resolve family conflict. Finally, new models for the delivery of legal services are emerging more quickly in this field than in any other area of legal practice—raising considerations around professional responsibility, regulation and even professional identity.

Prerequisite(s): Negotiation, and one of the Family Law courses [Family Law I, Family Law II, or the advanced Family Law seminar].
Restriction(s): Restricted to students in the College of Law.
