This is the Willamette Law Review's second symposium issue on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). A nascent movement just fifteen years ago, ADR is now imbedded in the curriculum of most law schools and is stock-in-trade for accomplished legal practitioners. Willamette's Center for Dispute Resolution, founded over a decade ago, has been imitated (but rarely duplicated) in dozens of academic centers around the country and abroad. Courts, legislatures, and administrative bodies increasingly have incorporated alternatives to traditional litigation into dispute resolution procedures. Numerous training opportunities for neutrals exist. Not-for-profit and for-profit dispute resolution emporia provide an array of services. No longer a cottage industry, ADR has arrived-big time.
