Legal and other disputes are increasingly resolved by dispute resolution processes other than litigation. Given this trend, it is important for law students to be familiar with these alternative processes, such as arbitration and mediation, and the benefits and risks they present. At the same time, these alternative processes require creative and interdisciplinary problem-solving perspectives and skills.
This course begins with an overview of problem-solving approaches, and is followed by the study of arbitration, mediation, and hybrid processes. The course emphasizes interactive student discussion and activities, including role-plays, exercises, and presentations that simulate professional activities of lawyers, arbitrators, mediators, and clients. The classes build on each other, so that knowledge that we acquire in the earlier classes will be integrated into our materials, discussion, and activities in later classes.
