Annotation: THIS AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION BIBLIOGRAPHY ORGANIZES DOCUMENTS ON ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION BOTH BY METHOD OF DISPUTE PROCESSING AND BY SUBJECT MATTER OF DISPUTES.
Abstract: THE NEARLY 800 JOURNAL ARTICLES, PAPERS, BOOKS, AND OTHER DOCUMENTS CITED WERE GATHERED INTO THIS BIBLIOGRAPHY FOR USE BY SCHOLARS, RESEARCHERS, POLICY ANALYSTS, AND LEGISLATIVE AND JUSTICE SYSTEM OFFICIALS. CATEGORIES INCLUDE GENERAL ISSUES, BASIC APPROACHES TO RECHANNELING DISPUTES, SPECIFIC ALTERNATIVE MECHANISMS, INSTITUTIONAL APPLICATIONS, SUBJECT MATTER APPLICATIONS, EVALUATION AND METHODOLOGY, AND SPECIFIC SYSTEM STUDIES OR REPORTS. ALTHOUGH THE FOCUS IS PRIMARILY ON CIVIL LITIGATION (MANY OF THE DETAILED ISSUES OF CRIMINAL ADJUDICATION ARE AVOIDED), THE DISPOSITION OF LOWER-LEVEL CRIMINAL CASES BY CIVIL ALTERNATIVES SUCH AS NEIGHBORHOOD JUSTICE CENTERS IS A BASIC CONCERN. THUS THE DOCUMENTS, THE MAJORITY OF WHICH WERE PUBLISHED IN THE 1970'S, COVER SMALL CLAIMS AND COMMUNITY COURTS, LAY TRIBUNALS, CONSUMER DISPUTES, MEDICAL MALPRACTICE, NEGOTIATION, ARBITRATION, MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION, OMBUDSMEN, AND MANY OTHER SUBJECTS RELEVANT TO CIVIL AND CRIMINAL DISPUTE SETTLEMENT.
Index Term(s): Alternative dispute settlement; Arbitration; Consumers; Environmental laws; Family courts; Judicial diversion; Labor relations; Mediation; Medical malpractice; Negotiation; Neighborhood justice centers; Ombudsmen; Small claims courts
