Principles of Dispute Resolution 2nd edition explains the theory, philosophy and practice of dispute resolution in Australia.

Professor David Spencer is a leading writer in Australia on the development of the law of dispute resolution in Australia. Utilising a practical outlook, he examines the basic methods of dispute resolution in this book.

Principles of Dispute Resolution 2nd edition has been revised to provide up-to-date commentary on the development of the law. In particular, the text focuses on the new and amended legislation in both State and federal jurisdictions, along with the developing case law on dispute resolution.

Topics covered by this work include:

  • What is dispute resolution?
  • Negotiation
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Additional dispute resolution processes such as: conciliation; partnering; dispute review advisers and boards; and adjudication, appraisals and determinations
  • Jurisdictional hybrids of dispute resolution such as: collaborative law; restorative justice; combined processes; and online dispute resolution
  • Statutory dispute resolution schemes
  • Legal issues such as: confidentiality; privilege; immunity; enforceability of settlement agreements; and enforceability of dispute resolution clauses in contracts
  • Ethics and standards
  • The future of dispute resolution
Written simply and succinctly, this text is a valuable guide to help students and practitioners alike understand the fundamentals of dispute resolution.
