Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

This course examines dispute resolution processes outside of, or supplemental to, the civil trial system with particular emphasis on negotiation, mediation, and arbitration as dispute resolution mechanisms. This examination includes a study of the procedures and dynamics associated with each mechanism as well as an overview of the pertinent legal framework. A particular focus is on the skills dimension, and students will participate in a number of simulation exercises designed to assist in the development of the lawyering skills associated with each process.
