Seminar - Dispute Resolution of Mass Claims: Alternatives to Court
In a Seminar on 19 April S.I. Strong, Professor of Law, will discuss some of the methods that can be used to avoid a lengthy and expensive lawsuit.
About the Seminar
For many people, court is the first place they think of going when they’ve suffered a legal injury. But what do you do if your loss is so small that it’s not really worth your time and effort to file a lawsuit? What if you don’t really want money, but instead want something else?
This seminar aims to explore the various means that can be used to resolve collective legal injuries, including those that arise across national borders. The session includes interactive elements to demonstrate some of the various methods that can be used to address legal conflicts and to trigger discussion about the best ways to handle these issues.
