Alternative Dispute Resolution

With the court system in Australia often requiring people to endure protracted and expensive procedures, alternative means of resolving disputes are increasingly important - not just to ensure that disputes are settled fairly and justly, but to also relieve pressure on the court system. Aimed at senior level students of legal studies, this programme outlines a range of alternative dispute resolutions, how they work, their suitability for different situations and their effectiveness. Mediation, negotiation, arbitration and collaborative approaches to law are examined in detail as alternative means of resolving disputes, and a range of areas where disputes commonly surface are explored - including family, workplace, property and consumer affairs. Lawyer, Catherine Gale offers a variety of expert comments on various aspects covered. This programme is a perfect introduction to the nature and mechanisms of alternative dispute resolution accessible to people every day, and would also be suitable for teachers of SOSE, Ethics and English Issues who are exploring the broader areas of social justice and equity in society.
