Alternative Methods of Dispute Resolution (3)

This course will examine methods of dispute resolution other than litigation, focusing on negotiation, mediation and arbitration. It will also explore the use of various hybrid procedures and other mechanisms specifically designed to meet the needs of a particular controversy or categories of controversies. Consideration will be given to use of these alternative mechanisms in the private sector, versus their use in court-annexed programs or by government agencies. A primary area of attention will be the role of the lawyer in each of the different processes. Simulations will be conducted to develop practice skills and as a basis for exploring the public policy and other issues that arise in this area.
