Achieving Civil Justice: Appropriate Dispute Resolution for the 1990s by Roger Smith
Authors from both sides of the Atlantic provide a collection of writings on civil justice. In response to Lord Woolf's proposals on civil-justice reform, the contributors argue that his examination does not go far enough, and that more radical reform and consideration are needed to achieve any significant improvement in the system. A major theme of the book is alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and its development. Specialists who have been at the heart of its development discuss its use both in commercial cases and within a community context, providing an examination of ADR's influence in England and Wales, and in the United States.
