W. G. Hart Legal Workshop: 1992

Dispute Resolution: Civil Justice and its Alternatives

The annual Legal Workshop, again subsidised by the W G Hart Bequest, was held from Tuesday 7th July to Thursday 9th July 1992 at the Institute on the subject of Dispute Resolution: Civil Justice and its Alternatives.

The Workshop, which attracted a varied audience of academics and practitioners, was particularly noteworthy in the way it effectively brought together British and European specialists in civil procedure and alternative dispute resolution, fields which had hitherto been excessively insulated from one another. The Academic Directors engineered a harmonious dialogue between adherents of these approaches.
