Overview of Alternative Dispute Resolution
This chapter explores the resolution of disputes between individuals. More specifically, it explores the methods that individuals use to resolve disputes without resorting to civil litigation. Alternative dispute resolution includes any method or procedure for achieving this purpose; however, there are two commonly recognized processes - arbitration and mediation. Employing these resolution methods may be mandatory or voluntary. Further, these methods may not be exclusive. That is, the parties may employ mediation, arbitration, and litigation, all within the realm of a single dispute. This chapter will explore the procedures and general legal principles applicable to these processes.
