Examples & Explanations: Dispute Resolution is the perfect
complement to any course on ADR, Negotiation, Mediation, or Arbitration,
because it balances theory with practice exercises -- the way dispute
resolution is taught in most classes. Using the proven-effective Examples &
Explanations pedagogy, straightforward text explains legal doctrines and
analytic frameworks; examples and explanations give students practice applying
those concepts in every chapter.
From the highly respected Examples & Explanations series,
Examples & Explanations: Dispute Resolution features:
clear and timely introductions to legal theory and analytic frameworks,
including:
the Federal Arbitration Act, federal preemption, challenges to
arbitration, and evolving federal law
confidentiality, the Uniform Mediation Act, and state confidentiality
laws
explanations of each of the three primary ADR processes and the key
concepts typically taught in an ADR class
examples and explanations pedagogy that gives students practice
applying the concepts covered in each chapter
a logical organization that traces the coverage in most survey courses
on Dispute Resolution
liberal use of visual aids, such as diagrams, charts, and conceptual
illustrations
references to the principle cases used in most leading casebooks,
including recent Supreme Court opinions
distinguished authorship: Moffitt is co-editor of the award-winning
Handbook of Dispute Resolution and has authored more than a dozen articles on
dispute resolution; Schneider is a co-author of Dispute Resolution: Beyond the
Adversarial Model, with Menkel-Meadow et al., and co-author of two other books
on negotiation with Roger Fisher
The Examples & Explanations pedagogy is perfectly tailored for the
way most dispute resolution courses are taught. Examine your desk copy to
determine whether your students wouldn't benefit from working through these
carefully-crafted questions and hypotheticals on their own or as part of a
classroom exercise.
