The Hon. Chief Justice Michael Grant
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of NT
Launching the Northern Territory’s Supreme Court ADR Address series on 30 May 2019, the Honourable Chief Justice Michael Grant discussed ‘The Interaction between the Courts and Alternative (or Assisted) Dispute Resolution’. Chief Justice Grant brought an insightful perspective to the ever-expanding relationship between ADR processes and the courts, with a uniquely NT frame. With the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations expected to reach majority in the NT by 2040, Grant CJ highlighted that this shifting demographic will require significant development in culturally appropriate ADR processes. One can anticipate that the Courts will be at the forefront of these changes.
