Winkler Institute for Dispute Resolution ANNUAL REPORT 2019-2020

Based at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto and named for the former Chief Justice of Ontario Warren Winkler, the Winkler Institute for Dispute Resolution is a vibrant centre for research that since 2014 is working on innovation in the domain of dispute resolution, access to justice, and the future of the legal profession and justice system. In its last report, The Winkler Institute for Dispute Resolution highlights its collaboration with the Cyberjustice Laboratory as part of the ACT project. 


Additionally, as part of the ACT partnership, the Winkler Institute and its founding Academic Director, Trevor Farrow, will continue collaborating as an academic partner in one of ACT’s 16 subprojects titled “Subproject 1: Pre-Conflict Decision Tools: Orienting Litigants and Defendants”. Led by Valentin Callipel, the Head of Mission at the Cyberjustice Laboratory, this subproject aims to develop tools to assist in preconflict decision making. On May 22, 2020, Trevor Farrow, two research assistants from the Winkler Institute, and the other committee members of the subproject had an online meeting to discuss the various projects that the member’s organizations are currently taking on, in hopes of using these projects as case studies for Subproject 1.
