"ADR as an alternative forum for litigation is of increasing importance to lawyers and others involved in disputes. The impact of the CPR and other major changes to the civil litigation system mean that it is essential that practitioners in all areas of law have a working knowledge of the practice and procedure of litigation using ADR. Paul Newman's book provides an excellent tool to get that working knowledge. Key contents: The role of arbitration; Practical issues in using ADR Mediation; Other forms of ADR: The Mini Trial; Rent-a-Judge; Adjudication; Mediation-Arbitration (MedArb); Legal concerns: limitation; achieving certainty; privilege and witness compellability; Extensive appendices include model clauses, model procedure and relevant practice directions. As a practitioner and author of EMIS's Construction Litigation Tactics, Paul Newman is able to draw on extensive knowledge of ADR and its role in practice in civil litigation. "
