This article discusses the process of Collaborative Law, its acceptance and development overseas and in Australia, and explores the possibilities for a multi-professional approach to resolving disputes and reaching agreements in family, workplace, community, probate and succession negotiations. Also, the potential impact of these developments are considered in relation to the expanded range of negotiation, communication and conflict management competencies, that both experienced practitioners and law students will require, to meet the challenges to legal practice and professional roles posed by the 'new advocacy, of Collaborative Law.
