This third edition of Dispute Resolution in Australia: Cases, Commentary and Materials highlights the consolidation of the process of dispute management and resolution, particularly in the government sector. We are now seeing the full impact of government changes to the handling of civil disputation, with the establishment and fusing of specialist tribunals and commissions. The result of the creation of these extra-judicial bodies has been a reduction in some jurisdictions of matters proceeding to trial. The interesting side-effect of this development is the rise of dispute resolution processes within these specialist tribunals and commissions that seek resolution of disputes in order to avoid hearings.
This new edition brings the law up-to-date and features:
- A new chapter on conflict coaching
- A re-written chapter on the key elements of arbitral procedures and the common law surrounding arbitral practice featuring the new Uniform Commercial Arbitration Acts
- A new chapter on dispute resolution and the criminal law system
- A new chapter on dispute resolution and industrial relations.
Dispute Resolution in Australia: Cases, Commentary and Materials, third edition, is an invaluable resource for both students and practitioners, providing practical guidance and analysis in this dynamic area of the law.
