You cannot resolve sexual assault claims without a comprehensive knowledge of the various resolution mechanisms available and the consequences for your organization. Understanding what needs to be in a settlement agreement is essential. And, whether in court or out, understanding how different resolution mechanisms expose institutions to various different types of liability is fundamental. OsgoodePD’s expert faculty have extensive experience in resolution options – from healing circles to trials.

They will share their experience on this crucial phase of civil sexual assault claims, including:

  • A comparison of resolution mechanisms, including court settlements, out of court settlements, mediations and judicial mediations
  • Characteristics of civil sexual assault settlements
  • Settlement agreements: what you should include, must include, and what shouldn’t go in
  • Confidentiality issues and their consequences
  • Unique features of resolutions in the aboriginal context
