This course will focus on ethical compliance and obligations for Arbitration and compliance regarding regulations and codes of conduct in Canada. This course teaches the fundamentals of the Code of Professional Conduct from the Canadian Bar Association, and the Code of Ethics from ADR Canada. The module includes an overview of the importance of transparency, disclosure, and rules which are essential for arbitration to maintain legal legitimacy and to discuss arbitrator-client conflicts of interest, complaints process, competency and credentialing of Arbitrators in Canada. The role play will focus on practical issues that arise in arbitration, such as preliminary objections, jurisdiction objections, and dealing with everyday ethical dilemmas, to develop students to perform the duties of an arbitrator without any apprehension of bias or conflict of interest.
