Mediation in a nutshell
This volume covers the history and philosophy of alternative dispute resolution; it provides a review of the basics of negotiation, examines court-ordered and legislatively mandated mediation, and explores instances where mediation would not be the best method. An overview of the profession itself is included, with an examination of ethical considerations. For Texas attorneys, the Texas Lawyer’s Creed Section II.11 requires clients to be advised of the availability of alternative methods of resolving disputes; this title provides a solid overview of the available options.
