Mediation: Principles, Process, Practice to be launched next week

Breaking News; In a rare show of trans-Tasman collaboration, Prof Laurence Boulle of Bond University in Queensland, Australia has combined with Wellington barrister and founding president of the Arbitrators & Mediators Institute of New Zealand, Phillip Green together with Virginia Goldblatt, director of the Dispute Resolution Centre at NZ’s Massey University, to write the NZ edition of Mediation: Principles, Process, Practice.

This book, co-authored by three of the most respected academic practitioners Down Under, is to be launched next week when Prof Boulle is visiting Massey and my pick is that it will continue to be the bible for all things mediation in Australasia.

“The book, aimed at teachers and students of mediation, legal practitioners, mediators and court officials, looks at how mediation fits within the legal system in New Zealand… It is a second edition updated to reflect the rapid development in mediation over the past ten years including the growth and diversity of mediation practice and development of theory”

Regular readers of this blog may recall I took a box of Laurence’s other book, the very readable Mediation Skills and Techniques, with me on assignment to Kuala Lumpur a while back and I was mobbed by students wanting more.
