For more and more lawyers, disputes are getting resolved through methods that we used to consider “alternatives” to court litigation. These include private negotiation between the parties, mediation, arbitration and various other methods. Now these really aren't alternatives, they are the main method of resolving legal disputes. So this week in my first year law school Civil Procedure course we covered some of these alternatives. Obviously lawyers will always need to know the litigation system. But the beauty of having the Werner Institute working with the Law School (and other educational entities at Creighton) is that we can give our students a much richer and realistic look at what modern lawyering looks like.
