Abstract

This book chapter from a conference of the International Association of Procedural Law considers rather diverse responses from legal education systems world-wide to rather similar pressures from market and other forces. Part II focuses on arbitration law, practice and education in Australia, especially the defining features of legal education provided by today's universities. Part III looks more broadly Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Education in an era of accelerating globalization and developments in Information Technology (IT). It introduces some of the proliferating international arbitration and negotiation moot competitions, involving students physically crossing borders, as well as more recent experiments in cross-border contract (re-)negotiations that make use of diverse IT. The paper ends with a proposal for universities, in particular, to take the lead in developing an IT-based course or competition involving cross-border involving contract negotiation, structured renegotiation, and arbitration.
