PAST SYMPOSIUM: JULY 9 -12, 2009
In July 2009, the American Caribbean Law Initiative (ACLI) had participants at its summer law symposium in the beautiful Caribbean city of Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago. The conference entitled, "Dispute Resolution and Restorative Justice" focused on the latest developments in alternative dispute resolution from cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary perspectives.
The international group of presenters included demonstrations of the latest technological innovation in the field by the Canadian group Chambersettle and an English company, The Mediation Room. Jurists, government representatives, academics and members of the bar will lead discussions concerning online dispute resolution, therapeutic jurisprudence and restorative justice. They highlighted the application of these methods to numerous legal areas including family law, business and finance, and human rights.
