Courts, competition and innovation – inaugural lecture by prof. Maurits Barendrecht

September 26, 2011 at 10:26 pm 4 comments

‘The traditional learning processes in court systems depend on appeals and review by the highest courts. These processes may take months or years, and at the time the lower court hears the decision of the higher court the case has been forgotten. A narrower and faster feed-back loop is of the essence.’

On 27th of September 2011 in The Hague Professor Maurits Barendrecht will discuss the unexpected ways in which courts face competition from other third parties. He will present research that suggests ways in which courts can innovate in order to retain their position and serve their constituents in a better way. Key issues in his work are evidence based conflict resolution and measurement of justice. He also has a keen eye for the effects of the ‘business models’ of lawyers, courts and other organisations active in the justice sector. The event is an inaugural lecture by professor Maurits Barendrecht as Hague Visiting Professor on the Rule of Law.

    Hi, I need a legal-Aid lawyer, or a list please of lawyers that can Help me get this resolved.

    I have tried my lawyer a Mr. Robert Sochor in Oshawa ON. whom said in his e-mail response to my request for help thar he would help me if I got a leagal aid certificate.

    I had informed Mr. Rob Sochor of the legal issues that I do need resolved , that I have been trying to resolve and Vary the child support Orders , since 1999, Be cause I had and have suffered significate changes in my circumstance , being fired or let go from over 14+ jobs since 1999, causing me to have very little or NO income, I applied for O.W. to help me get a career change better suited to my abilities, they said they would help me and fund me if I went to the several courses, job-skills programs which I did do, but then they denied me any and all funding for new career courses to train me for new jobs, and skills,and programs, they have repetedly refused to help me with bus fare, travel expenses, or course fees from 2003 to date.

    I was granted ODSP as of my first application in 2002 I believe, But they have failed also to help me or fund me with anything, they even cut my drug cards off ..

    I need to find a good legal aid lawyer to help me resolve this denile of help and ODSP funding that I was granted on September 14, 2008.

    Sincerely, Richard Jukes 905-967-3721 my cell …
