Alternative Dispute Resolution : The Advocate's Perspective - 2nd edition

Alternative Dispute Resolution : The Advocate`s Perspective (ISBN10: 0820551600; ISBN13: 9780820551609)
ISBN13: 978-0820551609
ISBN10: 0820551600

Summary: This new edition is designed for use in a one-semester course that focuses upon the group of alternative dispute resolution processes. Four aspects make this set of materials unique:
  • First:ADR methods cannot be understood without a thorough and initial grounding in negotiation theory and practice.
  • Second: The text stresses the role of the advocate in negotiating a settlement, whether the specific
    alternative is mediation, a court annexed summary jury trial or agency annexed regulatory negotiation.
  • Third: The authors present a balanced treatment of ADR and litigation, not eschewing any of the significant criticisms raising questions about various ADR methods. It is only by understanding the potential drawbacks of the various alternatives that the attorney is able to select the optimal mode of disputing.
  • Fourth: The book is comprehensive, offering detailed treatment of negotiation, mediation, arbitration and government-sponsored ADR. The subparts are detailed enough that the text could be used in a two-or three- hour law school course in which the focus is on only two or three of the alternatives.

The Teacher's Manual contain numerous problems for use in negotiation and mediation simulations, since interjection of problems into the text is needed for any ADR course to reach its potential.
