Abstract

The second edition of Dispute Resolution in Australia: Cases, Commentary and Materials reflects the dynamic growth of dispute resolution not only in Australia, but worldwide. In recent times, dispute resolution has undergone a considered analysis of its role in society at the community, commercial, political and legal levels. Added to this is its increasing relevance to, and its impact on, other disciplines such as counselling, psychology and the law.

Taking account of these developments in dispute resolution, this new edition brings the law up to date and features:

• A new chapter, "The Future of Dispute Resolution"; • An expanded chapter, "Ethics, Standards and Dispute Resolution"; • Insight into the new National Mediation Accreditation System; • Incorporation of recent family law developments; • New material on recently emerged hybrid forms of dispute resolution, such as collaborative law; and • Commentary on the vanishing trial phenomenon.

Dispute Resolution in Australia: Cases, Commentary and Materials, 2nd Edition will be invaluable to both students and practitioners alike for its practical guidance and analysis of this ever-growing area of the law.
