OUTLINE OF THE COURSE
The philosophy of Alternative Dispute Resolution systems is rightly stated by Abraham Lincoln “discourage litigation, persuade your neighbour to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the normal winner is often a loser in fees, expense, cost and time”.
The Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanism, as the name suggests, evolved against the conventional method of dispute settlement by courts. It is not disputed to state that courts take ample time to settle any dispute as well as they are expensive too. On the other side, ADR mechanism is less bound by procedural formalities and speedy in giving results. For this reason, ADR is appreciated by many countries around the world. India also became part of this change in the year 1996 when its enacted the Arbitration and Conciliation Act. The Act is a replica of the UNCITRAL Model Law.
