collaborative practice

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.

Bernadette Hoy presented a session at PLO day 2019 looking at the quasi-judicial clause in the participation agreement and asked if it prevented clients and/or solicitors adopting the collaborative process.

Sandy Edwards, from Shropshire Collaborative Lawyers Group, wrote up this report.

At the Pod Liaison Officer conference 2019, Collaborative Working Group co-chair Ian Hawkins asked the question do we screen out some clients because it is too difficult or because we don’t have the answers?

Kathryn Ferris wrote up this report from the day.
