About this Unit
In 2014, this unit replaced by 200812 - Conflict Resolution (UG). This unit will examine the theory and practice of alternative dispute resolution generally, and in the context of the Australian legal system specifically, although the course does not focus specifically on the law. The unit is experientially-based, and students will be expected to participate in discussions, exercises and role-plays. The theory and practice of conflict and dispute resolution will be critically considered, as will the social, cultural and legal contexts within which alternative dispute resolution occurs. The unit is presented with a multi-disciplinary, analytical and practical approach.Although an introduction to mediation is included in this unit, it is not a unit on mediation. This unit will provide students with a broad understanding of the theory and practice of dispute resolution, and provide them with the basic skills required to resolve disputes more effectively.
