Abstract from

What's the Issue? Judicial Dispute Resolution in Canada

Hugh Landerkin, of the Provincial Court of Alberta and Adjunct Professor, Peace and Conflict Studies Division, Royal Roads University, Victoria, British Columbia.
Andrew Pirie, of the Faculty of Law, University of Victoria, Victoria, British Columbia.

This article gives judges, lawyers, judicial policy makers, and other members of the legal community with an opportunity to evaluate the place of Judicial Dispute Resolution or JDR in Canada’s justice system. The authors ask whether judges acting as judicial mediators and undertaking other JDR activities fit within our understanding of the modern judicial function. The authors conclude there are sound reasons for JDR, appropriately and judicially devised, to be an integral part of the functioning of the modern judge.
