This aim of this Teacher’s Guide is to help prepare learners for assessment against Unit Standard 27845: Explain litigation and dispute resolution processes.

Once learners have worked through this guide, they should be able to explain the following dispute resolution and litigation processes:

  • negotiation
  • mediation
  • arbitration
  • civil litigation
  • criminal litigation

It is important to note that this guide only covers dispute resolution processes and litigation processes that are commonly used in New Zealand. Although the information here is sufficient for learners who want to complete the assessment provided by Instant Education Solutions, teachers may also want to cover international, historical, and traditional legal systems as part of their teaching curriculum.
