Collins, Pauline (2012) Student reflections on the benefits of studying ADR to provide experience of non-adversarial practice. Australasian Dispute Resolution Journal, 23 (3). pp. 204-215. ISSN 1441-7847

Abstract

This article reflects on the inclusion of an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) course as a core component of the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) curriculum for a law degree commenced in 2008. An outline of the course is provided. Student reflections of their experience of the course are reported and linked to three of the threshold learning outcomes (TLOs) for an LLB degree established by the Law Discipline Group to guide legal education. The reflections indicate positive possibilities for achievement of the TLOs and changing the student experience of law schools by the inclusion of ADR as a core course.
