Alternative Dispute Resolution
LAW JD 881
The goal of this course is to improve your ability to resolve disputes and to productively engage in conflict. In this highly interactive class, students will examine a variety of dispute resolution processes, other than traditional court adjudication, including negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and to a lesser extent collaborative law, dispute resolution system design and restorative justice. Over the course of the semester, students will engage in a series of exercises (i.e., role-plays) through which they can develop and hone their skills and approaches to dispute resolution. Discussion and short lectures will accompany the exercises, as appropriate. There will be short written assignments (1-2 pages) in which students reflect upon and analyze their performance in the exercises, as well as a longer paper due at the end of the semester. No final exam. ENROLLMENT LIMIT: 18 students. NOTE: This course satisfies the Upper-class Professional Skills requirement. RESTRICTION: Students may not enroll in Negotiation (JD921) and Alternative Dispute Resolution (JD881).
