Overview

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.
