Abstract

The manner of addressing disputes has been rapidly changing in the last couple of decades in Australia and many places in the world. New dispute processes provide options that vary from the traditional process of court litigation and these are swiftly becoming the norm for society. Practitioners of law in particular need to understand more about the nature and dynamics of conflict and disputes as they develop, rather than just dealing with the end result of a dispute. This understanding will assist when dispute practitioners are selecting the most appropriate process or model for managing a dispute. Before an adversarial or litigious process can occur in most Australian courts and tribunals parties will have gone through some other process in attempting to manage their dispute. This textbook will aid readers in deciding on an appropriate or required process to manage a dispute, and address the skills and knowledge required when choosing to follow a particular approach.
