Abstract

The article will develop a three-fold thesis, which may be summarized
as follows:
(1) Defamation is a field in which legal rules and gamesmanship have
frequently obscured the interests of the parties.
(2) Both substantive law reform and the use of alternative dispute resolution
techniques might result in major strides to correct this problem.
(3) There will remain some cases in which resort to the jury trial may
be the most appropriate means of resolving defamation disputes.
