This unit deals with dispute resolution (DR) in the justice system. It places DR 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 will be co-taught with unit Dispute Management PG. This unit may be co-taught with a G version of the unit.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Identify, explain and analyse different types of dispute resolution processes and how they can be applied to resolve different types of disputes in international and domestic contexts;
2. Identify the professional standards of dispute resolution as they apply to disputants; and
3. Apply dispute resolution processes in practice in a range of different environments and disciplines.
