Synopsis

For the first time from April 1, 2019, the Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) will have jurisdiction to decide minor injury motor vehicle claims to a $50,000 maximum. The CRT Chair is a presenter to explain the new CRT jurisdiction. Our other presenters are experts in administrative law, civil litigation and insurance law. The course will consider questions including: What evidence can the CRT use to decide the minor injury claim? How will limits on expert evidence be managed by the CRT? How will the patently unreasonable test, used for the standard of review for CRT decisions, be applied? The new CRT rules permit a party to be represented by a lawyer under the CRT’s new motor vehicle injury jurisdiction only, otherwise a party must apply to be represented by a lawyer: what are the key things lawyers need to know about this new process? This webinar is of interest to lawyers practising in administrative law, civil litigation, personal injury law and those lawyers representing clients before the CRT. Take this webinar to keep up with the news rules of the game.
