About This Course

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is the wave of the present -- and the future -- for resolving business disputes and conflicts while avoiding the greater expense, delay, disruption, lack of control, and animosity inherent in most court litigation. In most (but not all) instances, business disputes can be resolved better, quicker, and more cost-effectively through ADR processes, primarily arbitration and mediation. But many lawyers are relatively unfamiliar with these tools, and are confused about the differences between, and uses of, the various forms of ADR. Failure to have these strategic “arrows” in your practice “quiver” places you at a disadvantage regardless of the nature of your law practice. Attend this fast-moving program to learn what ADR is all about; explore some of the many myths and misconceptions about ADR; learn the 3 principal ways that cases can wind up in ADR; find out how ADR can benefit transactional lawyers, litigators, and clients alike; learn when ADR should and should not be used; discover how you can arrange in advance to avoid having your dispute go to court and instead submit it to the more streamlined and customized ADR processes; find out several ways in which lawyers can become involved in ADR; and hear powerful case examples exemplifying how ADR has resolved some real-life disputes where court litigation simply would not work.
