Perspectives from members who have a disability

The EDI Committee is working hard on a number of projects. These cast a spotlight on various aspects of EDI: the privileges that many of us as members have, as well as the additional challenges that many others of us have to manage, at times battle with, and at other times are able to celebrate. These additional challenges and privileges of course reflect those of the general public - our clients that we all do our best to assist in our professional lives.

Developments in Dispute Resolution and Collaborative Practice

Family practice is changing now more rapidly than it ever has done before. Just imagine prior to March last year when the vast majority of court hearings were face-to-face, when online mediation and collaborative practice was rare, and the Family Mediation Council would not allow mediators to conduct mediation information and assessment meetings by Skype or Zoom, save in the most exceptional circumstances.

Spotlight on wellbeing

A key theme of this year’s Resolution National Conference was wellbeing. We are all currently well aware of the additional strain that family lawyers are under at the moment due to increased workloads, juggling working from home with the office, and managing and working with our clients in these difficult and unprecedented times.

Workplace trauma

“Trauma does not just happen to other people - it happens to us, our friends and family and our neighbours. While humans are an extremely resilient species, able to rebound from relentless wars, family violence and man-made disasters, experiences like these inevitably leave traces: on our minds, our emotions and even our biology and immune systems. This matters not just to those who are directly affected, but to the people around them.”

Team work makes the collaborative dream work!

I was delighted to have been able to attend so many great sessions during the week of Resolution’s National Conference this year. As an enthusiastic collaborative practitioner and arbitrator, I was keen to sign up to the session on the new collaborative participation agreement, hosted by Angela Lake-Carroll and Adele Ballantyne.

The role of the lawyer in the mediation process

As family lawyers, we are used to referring parties to mediation, but it is rare for us to have insight into what actually goes on at those sessions and the importance of the conversations that take place there. Mary Raymont and Margaret Kelly-Edwards took the participants of this workshop, “The role of the lawyer in the mediation process”, swiftly into the world of role play, only too familiar to those who are qualified as mediators.

The Family Solutions Initiative

Every now and again there are moments in our journey as family lawyers which give pause and inspire us to re-examine the well-trodden path we have become so familiar with. As Resolution members, we are all well-versed in the range of non-court processes available to separating families (never more beautifully summarised than in Angela Lake-Carroll’s “Staircase of Opportunities”) and we no doubt endeavour to provide an early steer to our clients on the options which may be best suited to their circumstances.

Improving the effectiveness of FDRs

Family lawyers are always avidly aware that a successful FDR hearing, or at the very least a clear indication, can make or break a case. The indications are important to move the matter forward and limit unnecessary expenditure, but also to guide both the client and the practitioner as to the likely interpretation of the court regarding the issues in dispute.
