Educating lawyers in ADR



The starting point to this article is the changing nature of legal practice. To narrow the gap between legal education and practice in the legal services industry it is necessary to identify and predict some of the contemporary trends in practice. Practising lawyers are regularly confronted by the changing contours of legal work: client participation in legal services, collaborative lawyering, on-line dispute resolution, preventative and neutral lawyering, non-adversarial adjudication, rehabilitative justice, judicial dispute resolution, unbundling of legal services and therapeutic justice.
