Volume 17 (1979) Symposium: Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanisms to Landlord-Tenant Problems

This issue, atypical in format from other issues of the Urban Law Annual, is a special symposium volume exclusively devoted to exploring alternative dispute resolution mechanisms to landlord-tenant problems. It represents the first comprehensive publication on this important subject. Descriptions and evaluations of resolution systems are included with particular emphasis on judicial resolution in various jurisdictions. The first article by Randall W. Scott, Director of the National Housing Justice and Field Assistance Program, offers a summary and analysis of the area.
