David Sterns in Lawyers Weekly: The judicial mediation debate

Sotos LLP partner David Sterns has co-authored an article along with Bryan Finlay entitled “The judicial mediation debate”, appearing in this week’s Lawyers Weekly.

Judicial mediation is practiced throughout Ontario, but the actual form of application varies widely across the province. The article discusses the new Ontario Bar Association Judicial Mediation Taskforce, the aim of which is to:

  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of the current judicial mediation landscape;
  • Determine whether, and if so how, judicial mediation could improve access to justice and enhance the reputation of the administration of justice; and
  • Make appropriate recommendations to the relevant policy makers to further those goals.
