Research output: Book/ReportScholarly editionEducationpeer-review


Dispute management processes are becoming the norm as a precursor, or an alternative, to traditional court-based litigation. Dispute Management is a clear and concise introduction to an expansive range of dispute processes. Beginning with communication theory and practice, and the historical, philosophical and cultural considerations of dispute management, the book then addresses the traditional topics of negotiation, mediation and litigation, as well as interviewing, collaborative law and arbitration. Each topic is well-researched, offering the necessary depth, socio-legal considerations and balanced coverage of theory and practice. Chapters address relevant ethical and cultural issues and is supported by array of interesting examples that promote discussion. Case studies at the end of each chapter link theory to practice and present disputes between neighbours, conflict in the workplace and cases that make it to trial. Offering a combination of theoretical insights and practical information Dispute Management is a vital resource for students, lawyers and dispute practitioners.
