Supreme Court of British Columbia

Lunch and Learn Programs


The Supreme Court of British Columbia provides several informal Lunch and Learn programs, open to all judges of the court.


The objective is to provide judges with a deeper understanding of current issues through relevant topics to improve their substantive skills and further their knowledge.


The following topics were explored during the year: the role of parenting coordinators in a non-adversarial dispute resolution process that is court ordered for parents who have an ongoing pattern of high conflict or litigation; the potential benefits of “unbundling” legal services and a cost analysis and overview of related initiatives in BC.; workplace harassment for all employees of the Court (including terminology, types of bullying and harassment, how to submit a claim as well as the procedure it entails and workplace safety regulations and the Labour Act); and the role of the Registrar and the family law cases that may be referred to them.
