This article reports 3 experiments that were conducted to investigate preferences for alternative dispute resolution. Preferences for dispute resolution features were investigated with respect to decision control, process control, and rule control.  The three studies were intended primarily to reexamine previous conclusions with respect to decision and process control.  

Results suggest that mediation was the most preferred procedure and facilitative mediation was generally preferred over evaluative mediation. Implications for law and policy are discussed.
