Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a mechanism to resolve disputes outside the courtroom through mediation, arbitration, negotiation and conciliation. With the rapidly changing business and commerce landscape, the demand for efficient and time-bound methods of dispute resolution has increased. As a departure from the traditional adversarial system of dispensing justice, which is expensive, slow and often ineffective, ADR provides the panacea of early resolution of disputes to the warring parties.
This book provides an insight into the contemporary aspects of the law and practice of ADR in India. The volume, with contributions from eminent experts, sheds light on the usage of the best practices of dispute resolution in India and answers complex legal questions related to ADR. It equips the readers to understand the challenges associated with the ever-increasing ADR mechanism and addresses issues that have emerged following the enactment of the Arbitration and Conciliation (Amendment) Act, 2015.
