Product Description

Review

It is properly authoritative. It is readily accessible. I cannot commend it more highly... This book deserves to be the first and only port of call for every student of ADR irrespective of whether they are a litigant, a law student, a lawyer or a judge. I am sure that it will be. (Lord Dyson, Master of the Rolls, from the Foreword)

I congratulate the authors and editors on this excellent handbook. This is exactly what I envisaged when drafting chapter 36 of the Review of Civil Litigation Costs Final Report. (The Right Honourable Sir Rupert Jackson)

The importance of this handbook to the integration of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) within our civil justice system cannot be overstated ... no other ADR text has received such high profile endorsement - by Lord Justice Jackson, the Judicial College, the Civil Justice Council and the Civil Mediation Council. (Ian Gatt QC and Anita Phillips, Counsel)

... it is a superb summary and practical resource covering all the core principles, competencies, and legal frameworks surrounding the practice of ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution), and particularly mediation, in the UK today. (Mike Lind, TEDR)

ON ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION (ADR)

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Published recently by the Oxford University Press, this new work of reference on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has been endorsed and welcomed by leading judges and practitioners. It is already acquiring its fair share of accolades.

Appropriately it has been named `The Jackson ADR Handbook' following on as it does from the Jackson reforms. It is the direct result of Sir Rupert Jackson's recommendation that an authoritative handbook for ADR should be produced and indeed this is apparently the first book to focus exclusively on ADR.

Writing in the Foreword, Lord Dyson, MR credits Professor Frank Sander of Harvard University as a pioneering and pivotal influence in promulgating ADR as a means of resolving disputes back in 1976. The development of ADR in England and Wales has been facilitated by his work, as have, for example, the Woolf Reforms and the Civil Procedure Rules, as well as Sir Rupert's Costs Review. The result, in the words' of Lord Dyson is that `ADR is now a well-established part of every lawyer's practice,' adding that `the effective promotion of ADR is unquestionably in the public interest.'

The Handbook has therefore been produced for an audience of judges and lawyers as well as litigants. The fact that it is as useful for interested lay people as it is for legal professionals attests to its clarity, conciseness and accessibility. Even a cursory glance at the detailed table of contents should persuade anyone concerned with, or interested in ADR that this Handbook covers the subject in virtually every conceivable aspect from every conceivable angle.

We can safely say that with cashflow being tighter more people are taking to the courts to recover owed funds. There is in parallel a downward pressure on budgets within the court system. Many county courts are being closed and the rest clogged with money claims. Since the advent of money claim online every man and his dog is able to make a claim for almost any amount.

Alternate dispute resolution (ADR) is going to be the one thing that could help ease the burden on the courts. Professional litigators need to be made more aware of the other options available to their clients, especially in the lower courts. This may have several benefits around costs, time and keeping cases away from the courts.

This book is essential reading for anyone looking at specific ADR procedures and the tools available. The court system will be more punishing on litigants who have not followed the appropriate ADR route.

As a mediator in another country than England and Wales, I was most happy to find The Jackson ADR Handbook. It has helped me to prepare presentations both in my own country - The Netherlands - and abroad. It contains a wealth of information, presented in a very structured and accesible manner, facilitating comparative narrative with the approach to ADR in England and Wales and one's own country. Relative to its comprehensive size, it is a well stocked treasure box. Highly recommended not only for everyone with an interest in ADR in Engeland & Wales but also elsewhere.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Confession first: I got this book for the wrong reason. I was hoping for insights and legal language to assist in my writing. I also am genuinely intrigued by how things get worked out between people. Words like: 'Judicial College' or 'The Civil Justice Council' and the god-like 'Civil Mediation Council' had me fascinated. Until I started reading the book.

Much of it, dare I suggest, is common sense. And ADR seems to be anything that is not using a court of law to resolve disputes. One fundamental difference between in court litigation and ADR is that costs are born by each party as they proceed under the ADR umbrella. So I am learning.

It is easy to read and reference. I would have drooled over a referral to the ending of David Copperfield: but that's beside the point. Or are amateurs in law still breeding?
