Skills & Values: Alternative Dispute Resolution is designed to give students both theory and practical application for the skills and values which come into play during the various forms of alternative dispute resolution, including negotiation, mediation, collaborative law and arbitration. It may be successfully used as a as a stand-alone course book or as a practical supplement to a standard text. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the dispute resolution process. The idea is to read the material and then test and develop knowledge through exercises and simulations.
Skills & Values: Alternative Dispute Resolution actively encourages self-reflecting after each exercise Many attorneys go from case to case without ever reflecting on what they learned from the interactions. By doing this consciously in the beginning, students can train themselves to internalize the process, making them more intentional lawyers.
The Skills & Values series includes robust online content that is delivered through Web Courses. The content for the Teacher's Manual is also posted to the supporting Web Course. The online components of these books add an exciting dimension because they are designed to teach the current media-saturated generation of students in ways that are more effective for them.
