2011 Predictions by Osgoode Hall Law School Dean

Lorne Sossin, the dean of Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, makes a number of predictions in a January 1, 2011 post on his blog.

Sossin sees the coming year as a "tipping point" in a number of areas:
  • 2011 may be the year of the electronic casebook in law schools
  • the trend towards alternatives to the traditional justice system, such as alternative dispute resolution, will accelerate "through diversion programs to mediation and arbitration, collaborative law approaches, on-line public legal education and advice clinics, administrative adjudication and greater prevention and avoidance through quasi-independent agencies in fields such as consumer protection"
  • law schools such as his will move more forcefully into what he calls the "pedagogy of experiential learning", increasingly joining theory and practice
