About the Seminar

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an alternative to the adversarial system. Jurisprudence of ADR lies under sec. 89 of CPC, Order 10 Rule 1A, 1B and 1C, In the Constitution of India Art. 39A and many other statutes like Industrial Disputes Act, Commercial Courts Act, Hindu Marriage Act, Consumer Protection Act, Motor Vehicles Act, etc. recommend ADR mechanism to resolve disputes.

At present, the judiciary is clogged with over 3 crore cases pending in various courts all over the country. COVID-19 pandemic has further increased the amount of pendency. The existing judicial system ads it difficult to cope with the ever-increasing burden of litigation. Such state of affairs calls for ADR to step in where the justice system fails, because, as the legal maxim goes “Justice delayed is justice denied”.
