Australian Dispute Resolution

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review


Australian Dispute Resolution provides a theoretical, coherent and accessible treatment of modern conflict management and dispute resolution (DR) in Australia. It focuses on the knowledge of practice, values, skills and ethics that are essential for effective contemporary DR and legal practice, and that are also fundamental to the future sustainability of the legal profession. DR options across the matrix of available approaches are discussed and analysed. The book also incorporates several new dimensions into contemporary thinking about Australian DR, offering insights into the development of its future theory and practice.

In the dynamic world of DR, this book is essential reading for DR practitioners, litigators, researchers and anyone interested in the future of DR, law and lawyering, while its scholarly and authoritative analysis will engage and inform students as a foundation for successful future practice as dispute resolvers.
