Skills & Values: Alternative Dispute Resolution: Negotiation, Mediation, Collaborative Law and Arbitration (“Skills & Values”) is authored by John Burwell Garvey and Charles B. Craver. The authors wrote this book to introduce law students to the theoretical and practical skills needed to understand alternative dispute mechanisms. The authors’ goal was to provide a useful, real-world learning environment so that students can understand different types of alternative dispute situations. To accomplish this goal, the authors developed exercises where students would assume different roles in an alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) process tailored to specific factual scenarios. The exercises allow the students to apply the skills learned from the text, which explained the particular dispute mechanisms, while encouraging classroom discussion. Through completion of the exercises, students are able to reflect and refine their ADR skills in order to better serve their future clients.
