Final Essay 1 RUNNING HEAD: FINAL ESSAY Alternative Dispute Resolution: Final Essay Jill Pollard PA 412 – Alternative Dispute Resolutions Professor O’Keefe-Hale, J.D. Kaplan University December 20, 2013
Final Essay 2 There are several types of alternative dispute resolution and each distinct method holds varying potential for successful agreements. The one commonality among the methods includes the goal of resolving a dispute in a fair, unbiased process in order to avoid litigation. This essay explores the three ADR methods of negotiation, mediation and arbitration and identifies the advantages and disadvantages of each process. Negotiation: Negotiation, a bilateral dispute resolution method, is by definition a two-sided process that does not involve a neutral third party. The parties must reach an agreement without assistance or move on to employ another method to resolve their dispute. The negotiation begins with the parties defining their problem. Often, underlying issues arise during this stage as the parties realize that they have different perceptions of the actual dispute.
