Dan Rainey: The Universal Disclosure Protocol for Mediation

Is the Mandatory Mediation Program in Ontario Still Viable?
by Bruce Ally
When mandatory mediation was introduced in Ontario 27 years ago it was heralded as visionary as it offered many necessary benefits that could not be accommodated at the time, particularly a more efficient legal process. As with any reform, there is the need for revision over time.

SHOVEL 8 - Traditional Mediation and the Mirror...
by Paul Rajkowski
A look back: have these articles been just a series of mind jostling thoughts about a tradition in the mediation world, a stirring up of the current culture, or was it something else?
