  • The free online course Alternative Dispute Resolution: How ADR Programs Succeed introduces you to the broad range of systems that operate under the rubric of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This course presents you with the potential uses and benefits of ADR and the conditions under which ADR programs can succeed.

    This course begins by introducing you to ADR and shows you the different ways in which ADR can help accomplish rule of law objectives, such as supporting court reform and by-passing ineffective or discredited courts. The course will present the limitations associated with ADR programs and will then explain to you the background conditions necessary for ADR programs to succeed.

    The course will then focus on the program design considerations that are important for ADR programs. Within this section of the course, you will learn about planning and preparing an effective ADR program with regard to dispute resolution needs, ADR goals, and many more features that may arise during this phase of preparing for ADR. In this section, you will also learn about operations and implementations associated with ADR programs including why you should create support services to overcome user barriers and establish effective procedures for program evaluation. You will also learn how cultural norms may influence the design of appropriate evaluation systems.

    The course will conclude by explaining taxonomy in ADR including basic ADR models and examples of hybrid ADR models. This section will also provide you with relevant case studies that will show you concrete examples of ADR in action and different strategies used to cater to different situations.
