Evaluating dispute resolution theory and practice in Australia and overseas

About the Journal
The Australasian Dispute Resolution Journal (ISSN: 1441-7847) is a key resource for staying up to date in the area of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). The journal features articles covering the broad spectrum of ADR methods, including mediation, arbitration, independent expert appraisal, negotiation and early neutral evaluation.

This is the only Australasian journal covering the theory, analysis and practice of dispute resolution in Australia and overseas.

Covering a diversity of topical matters relating to ADR within and outside the court system, the Australasian Dispute Resolution Journal includes articles from a broad range of ADR practitioners, teachers and academics.

Case notes provide applied illustrations of how dispute resolution processes work in practice, making the Australasian Dispute Resolution Journal a practical and essential resource.
