Over the last three decades, Alternative Dispute Resolution, or ADR, has developed into a widely accepted field of study and practice. It is the process of seeking resolution to problems outside of court. It can be used across many fields, by those in the legal profession, of course, but also by social workers, mediators, and HR professionals: i.e. anyone in conflict management.
The Interdisciplinary Handbook of Dispute Resolution, edited by legal expert Dr. Paola Cecchi-Dimeglio, is a comprehensive collection of essays on the topic, and serves as the quintessential ADR manual of our time. On November 5, a panel of distinguished legal experts, including Dr. Cecchi-Dimeglio herself, will gather at swissnex Boston to discuss the book in an international, interdisciplinary context.
