About this Unit
In 2014, this unit replaced by 200813 – Civil Procedure and Arbitration. The aim of this unit is to introduce students to the fundamental concepts and theories of dispute resolution, and to consider the distinctive features of alternative modes of dispute resolution including litigation, arbitration and mediation. The unit examines the major roles and practices governing court supervised processes, which are involved in superior court litigation. There is also an examination of how to differentially diagnose a dispute and how to match it to the most appropriate dispute resolution process. Topical issues connected with adversarial and alternative dispute resolution processes are considered.
