is becoming an increasingly popular way to resolve disputes. It can be designed to resolve disputes most typically encountered efficiently, effectively and fairly in everyday personal and commercial matters including disputes involving both lower and higher monetary amounts and disputes where relationships are of lesser or greater importance. It can be used in family disputes, commercial disputes, partnership disputes, landlord and tenant disputes, condominium disputes, and many others.

When designed and conducted appropriately, integrated med-arb can be highly client-centric, fair, effective, and satisfying. On the other hand, if it is inappropriately designed or conducted, it can lead to confusion, frustration, and litigation.

This med-arb workshop, delivered by Colm Brannigan and Richard Moore, both highly experienced dispute resolution professionals, is an intensive three-day practical immersion in the knowledge and competencies required to run a fair, effective and efficient med-arb process.

Participants will explore where med-arb fits in to the overall conflict management continuum, how it compares to other dispute resolution processes such as mediation, arbitration, and litigation, and when its use is appropriate.

Participants will be given a solid theoretical understanding of med-arb and the practical skills and tools to confidently conduct efficient, effective, and fair med-arb hearings.

Topics covered include: an overview of the med-arb process, the benefits, and challenges of the process, standards of conduct and ethical issues related to the process, the negotiation and drafting of the med-arb agreement, developing a reflective practice, transitioning from mediation to arbitration, how arbitrators make decisions, award writing, and practical professional considerations for the med-arbitrator.

The workshop will take place in a positive and supportive learning environment using interactive adult teaching methods. All participants will be given opportunities to practice as a med-arbitrator at various stages throughout the med-arb process. Teaching methodologies include short lectures, case studies, demonstrations, small group discussions, interactive exercises, and role plays followed by constructive feedback.

Whether this is your first foray into the world of Med-Arb or you are well versed in it, you will be able to enhance your practice by taking this unique program which will fulfill the education requirements for the new ADRIC C.Med-Arb designation.
