Abstract

Most negotiation support systems have focused upon the notion of meeting the disputants’ interests. However in the legal domain, Alternative Dispute Resolution often occurs in the shadow of the law. Integrative bargaining neglects the vital issues of justice and power. In this article we address the issue of how to add notions of fairness to interests, through the development of the Family_Mediator system. Family_Mediator is an extension of the Family_Winner system, which advises mediators about potential trade-offs and compensation strategies for divorcing couples.
