ONLINE MEETING: Mediating the Litigated Case - Facilitative vs. Evaluative
This meeting is being hosted by the ADR - Nanaimo Section.

Speaker(s): Derek Brindle QC, Singleton Urquhart Reynolds Vogel LLP
Time: Thursday, December 3, 2020, 5:30pm - 7:00pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.50 hours

In many cases, commercial  litigation parties  will purposefully choose a mediator with subject matter expertise. The parties seek out and expect that the mediator will implement an evaluative approach in assisting the parties reach a settlement.This poses unique challenges for the mediator beyond those that typically associated with the "facilitative" model. "Evaluative",  in the mediation context, is however a term with no fixed content. It lies somewhere in the continuum beyond traditional facilitation, short of adjudication. This presentation will explore the role of the evaluative mediator and some "hybrid" techniques that may be used to compliment the facilitative approach.
