No one likes the legal system. Lawyers argue too much. Disputes take too long to resolve. And the results can seem arbitrary. Yet there is a method to the madness and understanding how the law approaches disputes can sharpen your skills for spotting and solving problems long before you reach the courthouse. This session will focus on three aspects that make disputes challenging to deal with: different perceptions of events, conflicting recollections, and ambiguities in people’s words and actions as well as in the rules that govern what people do. Come and explore how the legal system thinks about problems and how the lesson’s of the law can be applied to our daily work.
