This Guide was developed to assist researchers interested in studying alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation. The pages herein are provided as suggestions for resources to locate relevant books, journal articles, and free Web-based resources. The emphasis is on resources outside of Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberg.  The Guide also does not cover finding arbitration awards given that many such awards are private, confidential, and unpublished.

Use the tabs on the left or bottom of the screen to navigate through the Guide. Please note that some resources referenced in the Guide may have restricted access as indicated. Remember that freely available Web-based resources may change without notice, and that users are responsible for evaluating the accuracy and other aspects of the resources that are linked hereto and which Duquesne Center for Legal Information does not control. As always, independently validate information found through secondary sources, including free Web-based resources. 

This Guide was originally created by Patricia Horvath and was revised and is maintained by Julie Tedjeske
