This guide was created for students conducting introductory research in the area of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), and will identify the major print and online resources available in the Thurgood Marshall Law Library. With any project, unless you are already knowledgeable about ADR, it is best to start with basic, introductory resources and then to consult more focused works, moving from secondary sources to primary sources. You may contact C.J. Pipins, the course liaison, for research-related questions.
Secondary sources such as articles and books can provide you with an overview of your topic and help you think of search terms you might not have thought of otherwise. They also cite primary authorities such as statutes and cases. This guide provides suggestions for comprehensive information on arbitration.
Use the online catalog to find alternative dispute resolution treatises available in the Thurgood Marshall Law Library . Some suggested subject headings to search are [Dispute resolution (Law) -- Maryland] or [Mediation -- Maryland]. For research hints on how to use the catalog, see the Research Guide - Searching the Catalog.
