Mediation: Practice, Policy, and Ethics provides a comprehensive and current introduction to the world of mediation, including law and policy, case examples, and practice guidelines for mediators and attorney representatives. Leading scholars and award-winning teachers in the field present critiques of mediation as well as its promise and potential. Their practical, problem-solving approach includes both analytical and behavioral approaches in varying gender, race, and cultural contexts. The text can be used for lawyer-mediators, lawyer-representatives in mediation, and non-lawyer mediators. An extensive Teacherís Manual offers suggested syllabi, teaching notes, simulations, discussion pointers, and exam and paper suggestions for each chapter.

The Second Edition showcases recent case developments in mediation and adds selections from the latest law review and practical writings on new forms and applications of the processes.
