Welcome - The Processes of Justice LJSO 3000   The Processes of Justice
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course provides an overview of the rules and procedures of Canadian Civil and Criminal Justice systems, as well as those of Alternative Dispute Resolution and Restorative approaches to justice. It will clarify the roles of the parties, lawyers, courts, and intervenors in these different judicial systems, and give students the opportunity to apply the rules to hypothetical problems and/or various case scenarios. This course will also provide students with the tools to critically evaluate these processes in terms of access to justice, efficiency, fairness, and legitimate outcomes. An examination of Alternative Dispute Resolution and Restorative approaches to justice will provide the opportunity to evaluate the limits of conventional retributive and adversarial approaches, and to consider their potential for reforming our understanding of justice.
