Content

The purpose of this unit is to develop an understanding of the processes of dispute management, with a particular focus on ‘alternative’ or ‘appropriate dispute resolution’ [‘ADR’]. Students will be encouraged to consider the difference between (i) dispute avoidance and (ii) dispute management through developing knowledge and understanding of a number of related strategies such as negotiation, mediation, conciliation and arbitration.
