Prof. John Lande chaired the Planned Early Dispute Resolution (PEDR) Task Force of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Dispute Resolution, which recently published a user guide to help businesses plan for and manage disputes at the earliest appropriate time.
Prof. Lande was the lead author of the user guide, which was co-sponsored by the American Arbitration Association, International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution, and the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service.
The PEDR website includes a podcast of Prof. Lande’s presentation for the ABA Section of Litigation describing how lawyers can help clients get good results – and make a good living. The website also includes powerpoint presentations for business and legal groups to explain the basic concepts of this project. Prof. Lande’s book, Lawyering with Planned Early Negotiation: How You Can Get Good Results for Clients and Make Money, provided the impetus for this project.
