Alternative Dispute ResolutionStreaming Video - 2009
A lawsuit can drag on for years, creating an emotional and financial drain far exceeding any anticipated rewards. Prolonged litigation also presents huge operational problems for the courts. As a result, the use of alternative dispute resolution is on the rise. With an Australian legal center as a model, this program shows how ADR processes are implemented and how all parties involved in a dispute can benefit from them. Topics include third-party mediation, negotiation, and arbitration; the types of domestic and corporate disputes typically settled using ADR; assessments of ADR effectiveness; and the comparatively low cost ranges associated with ADR.
