"The Role of ADR in Labour, Employment and Human Rights Cases"

Speaker: Grant Mitchell, Q.C., Partner, Taylor McCaffrey LLP
Have you ever wondered what a lawyer’s take is on the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) practices?  Grant Mitchell is a lawyer with Taylor McCaffrey LLP since 1978 in the practice of labour, employment and human rights law.  
Grant will speak about his knowledge of the importance of ADR practices, and draw on his experience in many labour disputes where ADR solved the impasse.  Further, he will speak to the impact conciliation and mediation services have had on his extensive collective bargaining practices.  
Grant has also taught labour management relations at the Faculty of Law for 22 years, and trial advocacy for 10 years.

"Parenting by Text – An ADRIC Talks Reprise"
Speaker: Mike Lund, C.Med, Mediator, Facilitator, Canada Revenue Agency
Modeled after the popular "TED Talks" format and first presented at ADRIC 2015, the Annual National Conference of the ADR Institute of Canada, this presentation will be enlightening and amusing.
Mike Lund has been in the conflict resolution field for 17 years, conducting mediations; providing one-to-one conflict coaching; and developing/facilitating training courses and workshops.  Mike is a Chartered Mediator with ADRIC.  He has been married for 20 years and has a 19 year old daughter and a 17 year old son.
