Episode 8. Collaborative Law
Guests: Trudi Brown, Robert Klassen
On this episode we explore the newest and most exciting development in the way that many family law disputes are being resolved: Collaborative Law. It's luring thousands of lawyers and their clients away from the court system. Why? What is collaborative law and why are so many people flocking to collaborative lawyers? How do you know if collaborative law is right for you? Well, today we will get the answers to those questions from two highly-respected collaborative family law lawyers from Victoria, British Columbia.
Trudi was called to the B.C. bar in 1974. She was one of the first lawyers in Victoria to embrace collaborative law and am firmly wedded to the concept of resolving family cases without trial. She is a Family Law Mediator, a Commercial Arbitrator, a Parent Coordinator, and a member of the Executive of B.C. Hear the Child Society which means that she will interview children whose parents are unable to agree on parenting plans. Trudi has been very involved in my profession - in the Canadian Bar Association, as a Director of the B.C. Continuing Legal Education Society, as a Bencher of the Law Society, and as the President of the Law Society in 1998. She also served as B.C. Director on the Board of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. She is the Co-Chair of the National Family Law program operated under the auspices of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. This program is for lawyers and judges across Canada and happens for a week every two years. She is also a fellow of the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and the President of the Canadian Chapter commencing in August 2008. She has received the Women of Distinction Award in 1997 and was the recent recipient of the Community Leadership Award from Leadership Victoria for 2009.
Robert was called to the BC Bar in 1979 (Ontario 1970) and practices family law in Victoria BC. He is registered family law mediator and a member of the Collaborative Family Law Group. He is a former Adjunct Professor at UVic Faculty of Law for three years, Founder, Past Chair, current Treasurer of the Victoria collaborative Family Law Group, CBA Family Law Section Member and CBA Alternate Dispute Resolution Section Member.
