By comparing and contrasting traditional forms of litigation with types of alternative dispute resolutions, students recognize the function of ADRs in resolving disputes. Students learn that business managers need to be aware of the influence that traditional litigation has on an organization and the risks associated with choosing an appropriate method of resolving disputes resulting from their business problems.
