Why it is relevant for ...
[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] as a Key Elective : A significant part of many public interest lawyers' practice is ADR, particularly mediation. Students who want a general overview of the various dispute resolution procedures should take this course. Those who want a hands-on experience and a more in-depth review of a procedure, should consider taking Mediation, a type of ADR that is increasingly used and often court-mandated.
General course Description:
Lawyers' representation of their clients increasingly calls for skills within a broad range of alternative dispute resolution processes. In this course, you will learn about the variety of dispute resolution procedures that operate under the ADR umbrella, within and outside of the court system (including mediation and arbitration). The goal is for students to understand the law and policy behind these alternatives relative to court adjudication, to be able to select the appropriate process for a client, and to effectively represent that client in the selected process. Guests include third party neutrals and advocates from a range of contexts, including federal court, private mediation, private and public arbitration, and corporate legal counsel.
Course Style: A Substantive/ Perspective course looks at law from an external or non-traditional standpoint.
