Dispute Resolution: A Foreword, 88 YALE L.J. 910 (1979)
The essays in this issue of the Law Journal have been written and
presented as work in "dispute resolution." Consider the occasions for
using this term in legal scholarship. Almost all commentary on law
can plausibly be said to relate to disputes in one way or another. Yet,
the term "dispute resolution" is most often used to refer to social
scientific work that typically assumes a functional perspective cutting
across formal and institutional lines.
