Syllabus

This unit deals with Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in the justice system. It places ADR in context among traditional dispute resolution mechanisms in law and the growing field of restorative or therapeutic justice. Disputes and conflicts are analysed within theoretical and practical legal frameworks to identify core issues and to identify appropriate solutions. Students learn about and model skills in communication; negotiation; mediation and conciliation required for practice in this field. The unit also deals with the law and practice governing arbitration under Australian and both private and public international law.

This unit is co-taught with unit 9423 Alternative Dispute Resolution in Law G.
