Over the last few years there's been a considerable uptick in demand for alternative dispute resolution services like arbitration and mediation.
The pandemic has only accelerated this trend as people look to settle their conflicts outside of court.
And lawyers aren't the only ones pursuing careers in ADR.
People from diverse professional backgrounds are taking mediation and arbitration training to better handle workplace disputes - or set up private ADR practices.

Andy walks us through the online arbitration certificate and explains different pathways to becoming an arbitrator in Canada.
