SRLs and ADR: Beyond the Acronyms

How should arbitrators, mediators, and tribunals approach things when at least one party is a self-represented litigant (SRL)?  In this presentation, Professor Andrew Pilliar will review research on SRLs in Canada, discuss some challenges that decision-makers may face, and offer suggestions to help navigate those challenges.
