About the Authors
  • This volume considers the primary forms of decision-making for disputes: negotiation, mediation, and umpiring - in the context of the rapidly changing discourses and practices of civil justice taking place across a broad range of jurisdictions. Potential litigants increasingly need to be aware of the comple range of dispute management processes available to them, and lawyers have to develop skills beyond those traditionally associated with litigation and the courts. This new edition brings together and anlyzes a wide range of material dealing with dispute processes and the current debates on civil justice.

    • Examines Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) from a comparative perspective
    • Combines the theory and practice of ADR
    • Draws on a wide variety of social science sources

    Reviews & endorsements

    Dispute Processes: ADR and the Primary Forms of Decision-Making makes interesting reading for any dispute resolution practitioners. It is also an excellent academic account of the key principles and their context. … the underlying message is clear: a negotiator who knows the tools of decision making will achieve better results than those who do not know them.'
