ADR6415http://portal.vermontlaw.edu/Metacatalogs/Lists/Classes/DispForm.aspx?ID=1506ADR6415Environmental Dispute ResolutionJudy,MarthaStudents will walk away from this course having honed the skills necessary to be effective negotiators and advocates in the environmental context. This course explores the range of processes used to resolve environmental disputes, paying particular attention to consensual processes such as negotiation and collaborative decision-making. It considers relevant policy and practical considerations in selecting the most effective method of resolving environmental disputes. Instruction is based on readings, simulations, discussions and exercises of the theory of dispute resolution, dispute system design, and environmental law. Students will learn to assess the means by which conflict management processes are designed and implemented. A major theme of this course will be to compare the advantages and disadvantages of adversarial and collaborative approaches in environmental conflicts. Students should be prepared to actively engage in each class session and in the simulations. Environmental Law is recommended but not required.3.00000000000000GP0|#ad33ae6c-b2cb-45fb-bc82-74a589cfc65d;L0|#0ad33ae6c-b2cb-45fb-bc82-74a589cfc65d|2016 Summer - Term 1;GTSet|#ff5002fa-8399-4824-8dd4-231cdb4e3288;GPP|#938af55b-fbb1-40e4-b7f1-59a1714ca81b1:00PM - 4:00PM1506
