1:30 – 2:30 pm Opening Address: Building the Bridge between Law and Economics and Improving the Delivery of Civil Justice
Most Canadian judges, practitioners and those involved in the administration of justice rarely have the opportunity to consider their work through the lens of law and economics. The premise of this conference is that economic concepts could help us understand the effects of what we do and could help us better assess the effectiveness, both economically and socially, of choices and decisions the actors in the administration of justice make.
- The Honourable Chief Justice George R. Strathy, Court of Appeal for Ontario
