Dispute Resolution Skills are Essential for Business Students

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mediation is to enterprise, as litigation is to legal practice. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) skills are taught within law and some business faculties as optional subjects. However these skills are also essential for all business students. This paper argues the need for awareness of ADR processes to be brought to undergraduate business students as a part of business practice. Business students should be specifically taught basic skills to recognise where ADR methods may be used where a dispute exists, in the same way all law students must show basic competency in the use of ADR processes
