Course for Parenting Coordinators - Fall 2015 Date to be Announced
BCAMI, in conjunction with the BC Parenting Coordinators Roster Society, has established a new training course: "Arbitration Principles for Parenting Coordinators". It is a 3 day course intended to provide part of the training required under the Family Law Regulations to practice as a parenting coordinator. It takes account of the unique, hands-on, role of the PC, which involved aspects of both mediation and arbitration, and in which urgency is often an overriding consideration. A major focus will be on how the rules of natural justice are implemented in a hybrid milieu where a formal hearing is not appropriate. Decision-writing skills will also be emphasized. There will be a take-home exam. The course is open to both lawyers and non-lawyers. The course is scheduled for 2014 in Vancouver is to be determined. The faculty will be senior family and arbitration practitioners. Law Society CPD credits available.
