Title: Oregon Law Review : Vol. 90, No. 3, p. 691-702 : Foreword: ADR for the Masses
Author: Reynolds, Jennifer W.
Abstract: The 2012 Scholarship Series, “ADR for the Masses,” begins with the present issue and will continue throughout the year. The Series examines the proliferation of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes in large-scale contexts—such as mass torts, environmental and public policy decision making, collaborative governance, consumer disputes, and organizational dispute systems design—and encompasses both post-dispute processes (designed to accompany or replace traditional legal approaches to dispute resolution in mass contexts) and pre-dispute processes (designed to manage widespread or large-scale conflict and disputes earlier and more effectively). Sometimes ADR serves as a response or fix to the shortcomings of the legal system in situations involving multiple disputants or decision makers; sometimes ADR is an upstream strategy for managing disputes that, among other things, may render formal legal intervention unnecessary; sometimes ADR is a companion piece to traditional legal processes, pre- or post-dispute, when managing a mass disaster or large-scale dispute or conflict. The Series is an opportunity to identify not only the creative possibilities of these innovations and hybrids, but also to explore the logistical difficulties or ideological tensions that these new developments may present.
