Justice delayed is justice denied. We always say this, but in the administrative justice field, it is a rule that is often honoured in its breach. Is it a matter of culture? Is it a matter of resources? Is it a matter of how we structure our processes? In this session we examine the limits and possibilities of trying to achieve timely and fair dispute resolution, including the role of the courts, governments and tribunals themselves. The BC Civil Resolution Tribunal is a good example of how a number of system design elements contribute not just to speedy resolutions but more fundamentally to greater access to justice and to fair resolutions.
