Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution
A simple question inspires this lecture: What is the "value-added" of mediation for those trying to negotiate resolutions to conflicts? The question is one that mediators and proponents of mediation must be able to answer because it is one that parties to conflict--and their lawyers-frequently and justifiably raise.
