On May 14, The Advocates’ Society presented a $50,000 cheque to Osgoode Hall Law School Dean Lorne Sossin. The cheque was a donation in support of the Winkler Institute for Dispute Resolution. The donated funds are the proceeds from a dinner held by The Advocates’ Society in December 2013. The event celebrated Chief Justice of Ontario Warren Winkler on the occasion of his retirement.
Located at York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School, with its leading dispute resolution faculty, students, friends and alumni, the Winkler Institute offers an independent centre of innovation and excellence in teaching, research and reform-based practical application. The centre’s work is guided by a desire to push research boundaries in the service of exploring and improving all forms of dispute resolution – from formal court and tribunal processes to non-traditional and alternative real and virtual practices and possibilities.
