Alternative Dispute Resolution
Dispute Resolution (ADR) involves a variety of techniques and approaches
to achieve consensual resolution of disputes, in a manner which avoids the
cost, delay, and unpredictability of more traditional adversarial and
adjudicative processes. These
techniques may include mediation, facilitation, neutral evaluation,
conciliation, fact finding, use of an ombudsman, settlement conferences,
mini-trials, and peer review.
