Western Canada Family Law Negotiation Competition @ TBD
Mar 6 – Mar 7 all-day

We are excited to announce that Robson Hall will participate in the upcoming Western Canada Family Law Negotiation Competition from March 6-7, 2020. Dean Black-Branch has offered to host this inaugural competition in Winnipeg.

This competition will bring together practitioners, the judiciary, and faculty to work together to train law students to be family law lawyers. In family law, the access to justice crisis has propelled legislation and practice norms to move towards non-adversarial dispute resolution processes. In Manitoba, it is now mandatory for family law clients to engage in negotiation prior to involving the courts. As a result, lawyers are now required to build new skills, particularly in the areas of negotiation. In addition to furthering substantial knowledge of family law, the competition will provide a means for law students to practice and improve their negotiating skills. The competition will simulate legal negotiations in which law students, acting as lawyers, negotiate a series of family law issues.

The Western Canada Family Law Negotiation Competition is a competition for 3rd year law students. Working in teams of two, the law students will negotiate with opposing teams in three successive rounds of increasing complexity. The competition will be judged by various members of the judiciary from Manitoba, as well as senior family law practitioners.
