Brown & Marriott’s ADR Principles and Practice is the classic reference work in the UK and many other parts of the world for Alternative Dispute Resolution. It deals with Dispute Resolution as a coherent and discrete topic and remains unchallenged in this respect.

The Fourth Edition covers the theory, principles and practice of ADR especially mediation, providing understanding, guidance and authority. It addresses all the main fields of dispute resolution, such as civil-commercial, family and divorce, employment and workplace, neighbourhood/community, and restorative justice (victim-offender). It extensively covers other processes including negotiation, arbitration, adjudication, evaluation, collaborative and hybrid processes and a range of aspects related to ADR including court-related practice, ethics, confidentiality and privilege, skills and training and online dispute resolution.

Key features:
  • Provides an encyclopaedic work of reference for practitioners and students
  • Integrates practice and theory of dispute resolution with a national and international perspective
  • Explores and integrates models of practice and negotiation
  • Examines strategies and provides precedents
  • Assists practitioners, policy makers and the judiciary in addressing the issues affecting practice
  • Develops a rigorous academic approach making it suitable for academic institutions while maintaining its pragmatism
  • Incorporates developments in Information Communication Technology and Online Dispute Resolution
  • Expands references to ombudsman, which has become very widely used

“… This invaluable work.... covers all forms of ADR. It encouragingly points out that each form of ADR can learn something from the other and that strides are being made across the board to emphasise that more unites the different branches than divides them. Lessons can be learnt from every page. The ADR community must give thanks to the authors and the consulting editor for this book no self-respecting mediator can be without.”
Extract from foreword by Sir Alan Ward, Chairman of the Civil Mediation Council
