It only takes a few moments of scanning the news or scrolling through social media feeds to see why the demand for dispute mediators is on the rise.

In addition to the constant internet squabbling over a seemingly endless list of hot-button topics, there is also a steady stream of news about heated disputes involving every conceivable segment of society — disputes that only seem to get more and more heated. And those are only the disputes we hear about.

In short, more people feel wronged than ever before, and they want justice.

Reasons for Growth

Some disagreements simply can’t be resolved without attorneys and a court room, and more disagreements than ever before and now being settled via dispute resolution.

Here’s why:

  • Disputes settled with the help of a mediator allow the involved parties to state their cases — and, in turn, get those cases settled faster than if they were subject to the process and rules found in a courtroom.
  • Face-to-face mediation and arbitration cases are conducted without details of the parties’ arguments, complaints, and other disclosures becoming public knowledge.
  • Dispute resolution helps navigate complex workplace challenges and reach the next level of leadership to lend to organizational success. In other words, dispute resolution provides your organization with the competitive edge to resolve disputes internally and externally.

The increased demand for quicker and less expensive dispute resolution services has also created a demand for skilled mediators. Touro University Worldwide’s online Master of Arts degree in Dispute Resolution was designed to meet that demand (see https://www.tuw.edu/academics/business/ma-in-dispute-resolution/).
