New Book on Non-Adversarial Justice
From Dr. Michael King:
A book on the different aspects of what Susan Daicoff has called the comprehensive law movement or what in Australia has been called “non-adversarial justice” is to be published shortly. It includes chapters on the main vectors of this movement – including therapeutic jurisprudence, restorative justice, creative problem solving, preventive law, holistic law, problem-solving courts, Indigenous sentencing courts and court diversion programs as well as on coroners courts (as they operate in some common law jurisdictions such as Australia, England etc) and managerial justice. Further, there are chapters on ADR and non-adversarial family law. The book also has chapters on the implications of this movement for courts, legal practice and legal education. We hope it will assist in teaching in units covering one aspect or multiple aspects of the movement.
The book is designed to appeal to a broad readership including the judiciary, legal profession, academics, government and students. Hopefully it will also appeal to those from other disciplines and other areas of the community interested in non-adversarial approaches to justice and dispute resolution.
David Wexler kindly contributed a foreword to the book.
The book is entitled “Non Adversarial Justice” and is to be available within the next few months. I will post a further message when the book has been released.
