Effective and just dispute resolution mechanisms are important to corporations, government and individuals. A widening range of dispute resolution mechanisms are developing so that litigation or judicial determination of a dispute are no longer the primary methods of dispute resolution.
The Future of Dispute Resolution
provides readers with a greater understanding of the alternatives to litigation, the continuing need for litigation in certain circumstances and how dispute resolution processes may develop in the future. The book takes a holistic approach by looking at litigation, arbitration, mediation and other developing forms of dispute resolution procedures.
Important practical questions are discussed, such as matching dispute resolution processes with disputes, court reforms, the future role of the judge, the provision of access to justice through class actions, litigation funding and pro bono, the role of lawyers in alternative dispute resolution processes, the future options for international dispute resolution and reform of civil procedure through international comparisons.
The chapters are written by leading judges, legal practitioners and academics. It is a valuable resource for practitioners and students seeking to understand the future role of litigation and practical alternatives to it.
