Indian Residential School Abuse Claims - A Lawyer's Guide to the Adjudicative Process
Availability: In Stock
Indian Residential School Abuse Claims – A Lawyer's Guide to the Adjudicative Process is intended to demystify the Alternative Dispute Resolution process for resolving Indian Residential School abuse claims. Lawyers are guided through the intricacies of the ADR process, recently implemented by Canada, from the initial application stage, through the adjudicative hearing, to the decision. Topics addressed include:
  • The Model, which is a codification of the ADR process, is explained in detail
  • Reference is made to adjudicator decisions interpreting ambiguities in the Model
  • An appendix of decisions is included to familiarize lawyers with the amounts of compensation being awarded in the process for various forms of abuse and harm
  • The book canvasses the notion of burden of proof, particularly the concept of plausible link between abuse and harm that is unique to the ADR process
  • Lawyers are shown how adjudicators calculate damages using the Compensation Rules in the Model
  • Lawyers will learn their role at the hearing and the roles of Canada, the churches, the alleged perpetrator and the adjudicator
