Reprint of the Butterworths 2nd edition - isbn 9780406910578

This is the essential guide to Alternative Dispute Resolution of civil and commercial disputes in the UK, guiding the practitioner through the legal framework and practice of all aspects of ADR including the use of ADR in construction and personal injury disputes.

Written by a team of experienced practitioners and CEDR mediators, the book sets out all the information necessary to realise the business opportunities that ADR provides and addresses all the issues that a practitioner may encounter when advising a client on the ADR option, or taking part in the process as a legal representative, mediator or third party.

This timely new edition considers the effect of the civil justice reforms on ADR practice and assesses the increasing importance of ADR in personal injury and clinical negligence cases as well as considering the implications of the Human Rights Act 1998.
