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.
