The book covers the major disputing processes with an emphasis on negotiation, mediation, and other consensual processes; points to the diverse skills needed to be proficient in ADR; examines the developing law of ADR; shows how ADR may be applied in practical case scenarios; and predicts the factors that will most affect ADR’s future development.
