Abstract

Negotiation, mediation, and arbitration—the three major practice areas of ADR—have become so mainstream that many argue that the “A” of ADR, which historically has stood for “alternative,” no longer applies. But modern ADR originally developed as a set of prac- tices outside the mainstream, intended in large part to promote social transformation and empower individuals. Reynolds argues that these activist roots of ADR should not be forgotten, and in fact should spur new research and pedagogy around activism, community organizing, social movements, and other “extralegal” approaches to changing law and society.

Keywords: negotiation, mediation, ADR, alternative dispute resolution, activism
