Innovate. Collaborate. Crafting specialized processes and remedies. Embracing new visions of what justice means. These are all things that Tribunals do, generally with encouragement and applause from their user communities, legal academics and their government masters. Yet there are tension points, situations where tribunals experience judicial smackdowns, or confront the reality that they do not have the power or jurisdiction to give effect to their apparent brilliance. From one perspective, this may be seen as tribunals pushing the boundaries to get closer to substantive justice, not being content with the same old. For others, tribunals are taking this expert thing too far, cutting corners, playing fast and loose with fundamental rights and making assumptions about what constitutes justice.

Join our distinguished panel of tribunal members, judges, lawyers and academics as we explore issues ranging from settlements, to mediation-adjudication, to enforcing remedies and more.
