A Practical Approach to Alternative Dispute Resolution

Fifth Edition

Professor Susan Blake, Associate Professor Julie Browne, and Professor Stuart Sime

A Practical Approach

  • An invaluable resource offering comprehensive coverage of ADR at a level appropriate for the Bar Professional Training Course, the Legal Practice Course, and LLM courses on ADR
  • Written by authors with extensive experience of practice and postgraduate teaching, the text takes a highly practical approach and is supported by a number of learning resources, including sample documentation, flowcharts, tables, and examples
  • Provides a full review of the range of ADR processes, including mediation, negotiation, conciliation, and arbitration, examining the case law and procedural rules for each option
  • The accompanying online resources contain useful extra material and updates, keeping readers abreast of developments in the field

New to this Edition:

  • Fully revised to incorporate developments in the law since the previous edition, such as the technical changes resulting from the Consumer Rights Act 2015
  • Further discussion of the proposals for an Online Dispute Resolution Courts and Tribunal Service and the changing role of technology in court processes
  • New case law added in key areas, including A v B [2017] on agreements to arbitrate, Menini v Banco Popolare Societa Cooperativa [2017] on the scope of Directive 2008/52/EC on aspects of mediation, and Mascareignes Sterling Co Ltd v Chang Cheng Esquares Co Ltd [2016] on giving reasons in arbitral awards
