Associate Professor Kristen M. Blankley published Understanding Alternative Dispute Resolution, with co-author Maureen Weston, in August 2017.

Understanding Alternative Dispute Resolution provides a comprehensive overview of the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”). The use of ADR methods has grown rapidly and touches the practices of lawyers on a local, national, and international level. ADR has transformed the nature of the lawyers’ practice and roles as client counselor, advocate, and neutral. The treatise covers the major ADR processes, including client counseling, negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and collaborative law and addresses legal, practical, and ethical aspects of each process. This title provides a framework for selecting the most appropriate dispute resolution process and will assist attorneys, law students, neutrals, and parties in conflict in effectively addressing, managing, and resolving disputes.
