What will be the consequences of a public skilled in dealing creatively with conflicts? Will universities and law schools be ready when these students enter their classrooms? Will community violence, particularly juvenile crime, decrease? Will suits cease to be the answer? Will lawyers change their style or go out of style? Will the foundations of our legal system be challenged? Will people who feel confident in handling their personal amd community disputes in a non-adversarial manner demand that governments solve international disputes without violence? We do not know the answers to these questions, but the impact of teaching dispute resolution skills to children certainly will be profound.
