Why justice isn’t always fair…
During the past decades justice has become one-dimensional.
A dispute between two parties is treated as a specific problem and taken out of the context of the relationship between these parties.
It is then adjudicated purely by Dutch Law.
The Judge adjudicates and that is the end.
Is that the case?
Will parties never meet again?
Will they never work together anymore?
And did the decision of the court do justice to intentions and underlying emotions?
Digna de Bruin Advocacy & Mediation
Digna de Bruin is constantly looking for what it is that moves parties in a dispute.
Adjudication is good as long as it leads to justice, preferably for both parties.
Only then people will receive optimal justice.
And eventually a human being is the measure of all things.
Digna calls this outlook, based on the human scale, Justice in Balance. With her approach Digna is part of the international movement Integrative Law.
Justice in Balance is reflected in Digna de Bruin’s daily practice for advocacy and mediation.
In addition Digna can act as a Justice in Balance mentor or coach for colleagues as well as for future lawyers and mediators.
