ADR for Legal Professionals
, Samantha Callow
Unlike other conflict resolution texts, ADR for Legal Professionals recognizes and addresses the specific needs of paralegals involved in alternative dispute resolution. Following LSUC guidelines, the text explores key issues such as ethics, access to justice, licensing of paralegals, and the increased role of paralegals.
With information and tips designed for paralegals, readers will become better equipped to effectively advocate on behalf of clients. They will also learn fundamental tactics and develop essential communication skills that will prepare them for mediation, negotiation, and arbitration.
Additionally, this text provides practical resources including checklists, practice tips, and industry-specific role plays to further enforce key concepts and strategies. This text is a must-have collection of specialized materials for any paralegal learning about conflict resolution.
"I chose to use ADR for Legal Professionals for our paralegal program this year and could not be more pleased with the decision. I rave about it to colleagues! While I have taught at the college level for many years, I am new to teaching this course. I am blown away by the lesson materials (role plays, links, activities, etc.) and links to additional resources provided (articles, videos and websites). If all textbooks had these resources, I swear I would never look at another publisher! Every activity has been easy to implement, well received by students, and keeps the classroom very engaging...not easy to do at 8 a.m. on a Friday."
