Dispute Resolution, Fifth Edition

Dispute Resolution, Fifth Edition Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This edition retains the great features that have always made it a dependable source for students:

- provides thorough, systematic coverage, moving from overviews to critical analysis to application to evaluation and practice

- includes a wealth of simulations (both classic and new) and questions throughout; simulations allow students to evaluate, prepare for, and practice the various dispute resolution techniques

- offers strong coverage of mediation, a growing area of ADR study

- provides an ADR Research Guide in the Appendix

- includes an updated Teacher's Manual with responses to every question posed in the text

The Fifth Edition has been thoroughly updated to provide students with all the latest information, including:

- a new Chapter 11 on importing and exporting mediation and dispute resolution techniques from/to other countries

- important new Supreme Court and federal circuit court cases in arbitration, including the two newest Supreme Court cases in this area: Bazzle v. Green Tree Financial Corp. and Buckeye Check Cashing v. Cardegna

- excerpts from and references to recent publications in ADR

- new teaching questions to help emphasize important points in the material

- new material on pressing issues in mediation, including whether lawyers engage in the unauthorized practice of law when representing clients outside the jurisdiction where they are licensed and whether mediators should be certified

Book News Annotation:

Goldberg (law, emeritus, Northwestern University) overviews the dispute resolution landscape in this work for law students and lawyers. Coverage encompasses disputing procedures and processes, dispute resolution and the justice system, selected applications, and the future of alternative dispute resolution. A final chapter of case problems is included. About 200 pages of appendices cover various acts, standards, and other legislation. There is also a 45-page annotated guide to finding and using resources such as glossaries, encyclopedias, cases, books, annual reports and yearbooks, arbitration decisions, articles, periodicals, and organizations. This fifth edition appears only four years after the last, reflecting the rapid pace of legal and empirical developments in the field. There is a new chapter on exporting techniques to other countries. The number of simulations and questions has been increased, and some of the simulations are keyed to videotapes so that students can first do the simulations themselves and then see how they are handled by experienced dispute resolvers. The book can be used as a text for a basic course, and as background reading for simulations. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
