Course Description

Alternative Methods of Dispute Resolution (ADR). Limited enrollment. The objective of this course is to educate students about the dispute resolution mechanisms that provide a viable alternative to litigation and the appropriate uses and limitations of each model. Specific topics include conciliation, negotiation, mediation, arbitration, mini-trials, summary jury trials, rent-a-judge, and the use of the ombudsman. Policy, practical and ethical issues raised by these alternatives are examined through the case law and the relevant statutes. Videotapes of simulated mediations and negotiations, as well as lectures by experienced guest ADR practitioners, are used to complement classroom instruction.
