PA 3590 - Alternative Dispute Resolution


(1)
The course focuses on mediation, arbitration, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and how such procedures can be applied in tort, business, employment, and other types of civil disputes. Also examined will be the growing use of pre-dispute ADR clauses in contracts involving employment, financial, and other business contexts. The perspective taken will be that of both the advocate and the neutral person in ADR.
