LAWS 515 - Alternative Dispute Resolution
(2 cr.) This course examines the ways that attorneys participate in arbitration, mediation, and negotiation to help their clients prevent and resolve legal disputes. The course will also cover emerging and hybrid methods of dispute resolution, such as mini-trials, collaborative lawyering, and med-arb. The focus will be on problem solving; students will increase their ability to diagnose the causes of conflict and the obstacles to negotiated agreement and then prescribe appropriate mechanisms of dispute resolution.
