This Alternative Dispute Resolution online training course is designed for managers and C-suite executives. Litigation in either an adversarial or inquisitorial system is expensive, time-consuming, risky, and sometimes counterproductive. This course will review the prevailing public, adjudicative systems used to resolve civil disputes involving businesses. It will explore alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods that can save a company time and money and safeguard its reputation.
This Alternative Dispute Resolution online training course explores methods of dispute resolution other than expensive and time-consuming litigation.
The first and second modules provide an overview of different alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, how and why they developed, and business best practices that enable the implementation of an ADR program.
The third module looks at negotiation as an ADR method by examining two general models, its process and outcomes, and how it can be applied internationally.
The fourth and fifth modules explore the nature of arbitration by focusing on arbitration between businesses as well as labor and employment (or internal) arbitration. These modules provide the knowledge required to use arbitration as a viable option for dispute resolution.
The sixth module delves into mediation as a dispute resolution mechanism by discussing three forms of mediation, the overall process, mediation selection, and its advantages and disadvantages.
Finally, the seventh module looks at two hybrid mechanisms—the summary jury trial and mini-trials. This module explores how both mechanisms use elements of litigation, mediation, and negotiation and provide unique use cases, advantages, and disadvantages.
