From coast to coast, dispute resolution initiatives are flourishing in both public and private sectors. The fifth edition of Bypass Court gives readers a quick, realistic, and current picture of dispute resolution in Canada. Moving at a brisk pace, it uses contemporary illustrations and real-life anecdotes to guide the reader through dispute resolution options that begin with constructive conversations and continue to mediation, arbitration, and other choices.
This is a handbook for everyone -- anyone in an existing or potential dispute; any student, practitioner or devotee of dispute resolution; and any merely curious or interested reader. It delivers accessible information about what each dispute resolution option requires and what it can realistically accomplish.
First published in 1996, Bypass Court has been completely revised with updated commentary, new material, and current Canadian examples. There are new chapters, too, including "Constructive Conversations" and "Dispute Resolution and the Courts." Available for purchase and course adoptions through LexisNexis.
