Course Detail: CLSALTDISRES - Alternative Dispute Resolution
Course Description
Alternative Dispute Resolution refers to dispute resolution techniques that may better suit the needs of parties than traditional litigation does. This intensive course focuses on both traditional and non-traditional dispute resolution options. Participants will review the growth and application of settlement options in the United States. The course will discuss the mediation process, the role of the mediator, and problems encountered in mediation. Students will discuss the art of negotiation and examine how to select the most cost-effective and least intrusive ADR method to achieve the most positive result for both parties. Specific attention will be given to the traditional techniques of negotiation, mediation, and arbitration and more modern variations, such as summary jury trials and mini-trials.
