Against Settlement: Twenty-Five Years Later

In 1984, Owen Fiss provocatively argued that the ADR movement overvalued settlement, that adjudication serves a purpose greater than dispute resolution, and that "[c]ivil litigation is an instrument for using state power to bring a recalcitrant reality closer to our chosen ideals." Against Settlement, 93 Yale L.J. 1073 (1984). What do we make of his arguments twenty-five years later? In the intervening years, the dispute resolution field has matured, public interest lawyering has changed, aggregate litigation has grown with comprehensive resolution as an expected endgame, and global perspectives on litigation have become more prominent, shedding new light on the arguments Fiss raised.
The Fordham Law Review has assembled a remarkable group many of the nations leading voices in ADR, complex litigation, and public interest lawyering for a one-day symposium to reconsider questions of settlement and adjudication in civil litigation.
