FORTHCOMING PUBLICATIONS Forthcoming Publications by DRC Staff The second New Zealand edition of Mediation: Principles, Process, Practice (Lexis Nexis, Wellington, 2009) will be launched in Palmerston North on 21 January. The co-authors are Laurence Boulle of the DRC, Virginia Goldblatt of Massey University and Philip Green of the Wellington Bar. Skills, Ethics and Values for Legal Practice by Bobette Wolski (forthcoming Thomson Reuters, February 2009), second edition, assists readers to develop the skills required to interview and advise clients proficiently, conduct legal research, analyse and solve legal proglems, write effective and succinct legal letters and documents, negotiate and mediate disputes and litigate a range of matters before a court of law. It approaches skills teaching on the basis that relevant ethics and values should be involved in the learning of each skill. The text provides in depth analysis of the ethical and professional responsibilities of a practitioner when dealing with clients, the court, opponents and other effected third parties. Since the last edition, developments in a number of areas have necessitated the creation of two new chapters: • a new chapter on ethics and professional responsbility which Fazlul Huq visited the Dispute Resolution Centre of 5 November. Mr Huq is the Founder and CEO of Madaripur Legal Aid Association (MLAA), a frontline NGO in Bangladesh that has played a pioneering role in reforming traditional dispute resolution mechanisms in Bangladesh and popularising ADR in the communities. MLAA was founded in 1978 and has over 250 permanent employees over 10 offices around Bangladesh. They settle 7000 disputes every year, mostly family, commercial and minor criminal disputes with only approximately 500 proceedings to litigation each year. In their 30 years of operation, MLAA has trained more than 50,000 mediators for the villages of Bangladesh. examines the law of lawyering, underlying social and applied approaches to ethical reasoning as well as approaches to the regulation of ethics and professional responsibilities; and • a new chapter on mediation and collaborative law. Other enhancements to the completely revised text include: • comprehensive references to new legal professional legislation and rules promulgated in most Australian jursidictions; • more in depth coverage of 'atypical' client interviews and the moral and ethical dimensions of interviewing; • new material on the psychological barriers to communication and settlement drawing on disciplines of discourse analysis, conversation analysis, linguistics, sociology and philosphy; • incorporation of new developments in mediation and collaborative law including: the Law Council of Australia's "Guidelines for Lawyers in Mediations"; the amendment to pre-filing procedures in the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) and the establishment of its Family Dispute Resolution Services Register effective from 1 July 2007; and the National Mediator Accreditation Scheme which commenced on 1 January 2008; • new simulations and exercises for skills development and reflection on the ethical and moral dilemmas involved in legal practice. This is a comphrensive and stimulating account of the skills, ethics and values necessary for a legal practitioner and the theory behind them.
