Alternative Dispute Res

by Thomas E. Carbonneau

Editorial Reviews

One of the most discussed legal topics of the 1980s has been the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), based on the proposition that, when embroiled in private legal conflicts, individuals should put aside formalized adversity and attempt to reach mutually agreeable solutions through arbitration. Carbonneau (law, Tulane U.) outlines the four principal systems of law dominant in the world today. He then examines how each system provides for dispute resolution, and the role that nonadversarial ADR plays in commercial arbitration, personal injury disputes, and divorce. Annotation c.
