Lawyers' role options in family dispute resolution
Cooper, Donna & Brandon, Mieke (2010) Lawyers' role options in family dispute resolution. Australasian Journal of Dispute Resolution, 22, pp. 198-206.
Both family lawyers and family dispute resolution practitioners are“gatekeepers” to the family law system.In this article the authors explore,with reference to recent research, the characteristics shown to be present in successful collaborative relationships between these two groups of professionals. They then apply Rundle’s spectrum of contributions that lawyers can make to mediation to the family law context and explore the various role options for family lawyers in family dispute resolution.
