Great new Mediation & ADR web sites:

Texas Tech ADR Class -- a complete class on the web.
Peter B. Bloch
Mediation Concepts
Consulting & Conciliation Service

I'm always looking for more great web sites to add to my collection -- please send me recommendations and suggestions.

New Book on Hate Speech.

I've just finished reading How to Disagree Without Being Disagreeable by Dr. Suzette Haden Elgin.  The book covers all the basics on avoiding and calming verbal violence.  If you are not familiar with Dr. Elgin's works, this is an excellent place to start.  If you are familiar with her works, this one is aimed more at covering the basics and introducing people to the concepts than towards expanding the genre.  An excellent book and well recommended to anyone who has to deal with hate speech.

New Essay/Comment.

A new short essay, The Resolution Cycle and Mediation, is now on-line at  I am planning on expanding it as time permits, but am looking for some comments and feedback.  The essay is related to one I did for a trauma class a friend is teaching ../living/trauma01.htm -- and I realized that the same principles applied to mediation (albeit in a different fashion).

Personal Notes.

I remain fairly busy.  I have applied for faculty positions at several schools.  This time around I expect only to learn how to properly apply, but it has been an interesting experience.  I am also keeping an on-line journal at  I am, of course, interested in any suggestions, advice or directions.

Technical notes.  

My hosting service recently upgraded all the equipment, internet connections, servers, etc.  On the good side, everything is much faster now.  On the bad side, this week had a number of times when my web site,, could not be reached. My apologies for the technical difficulties and any inconvenience they may have caused anyone. For the cost, remains a bargain.

Mediation Monthly.

Troy Smith and Mediation Monthly are still at 1-800-ADR-FIRM and are still making sample issues available for free. Call and get a free issue and decide if the magazine is one that you find valuable.  I enjoy it.


Finally, Camara, the Peruvian Mediation Law Journal, should be publishing its second issue this Spring/Summer.  

Submissions to

As always, I am interested in any submissions or articles anyone would like to have posted on the web.  With my best regards, I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Stephen Marsh

Post Script (the "extra" material for the on-line version).

An excerpt from a reply

"Just to let you know that I enjoy very much reading your mailing about ADR, and have visited some of te very interesting web sites you recommend. Please keep the hard work.

For your records, on November 13th 1997, the Peruvian Government enacted Law 26872 regulating conciliation as a mandatory stage before starting any legal procedure dealing with actions related to family, and rights of "free disposition" (mandatory conciliation will enter into effect in January of year 2,000) This law was regulated by Supreme Decree N 001-98-JUS published in the Official Gazzette "El Peruano", last tuesday 13th.

APENAC is translating these regulations, and as soon as they become available will be sent to you for consultation by people interested in their content."

I'll be putting those on the site as soon as I have them!

Interesting Web Site

I'm not sure I can recommend this site, but it is interesting:
