Amity Law School, Noida is pleased to announce the Second Edition of the Amity National Alternative Dispute Resolution Tournament. In its first edition, this event was a composition of four competitions viz. Mediation-Arbitration Competition, Negotiation Competition, Client Counselling Competition and Arbitral Award Writing Competition. From our experiences from the first edition, we have decided to merge the Mediation-Arbitration Competition and the Arbitral Award Writing Competition. The effect of this change will be that the participant who will act as the arbitrator will also write an award after the proceedings. This will encourage a practical approach for the participants.

About the Tournament: The concept of Alternative Dispute Redressal (ADR) is that it provides a substitute to the conventional methods of resolving disputes. ADR offers to resolve various types of matters including civil, commercial, industrial and family etc., where litigation takes years to settle the disputes. ADR provides the parties with a channel to initiate a dialogue and reach the settlement  expeditiously and cost-effectively.
The Alternative Dispute Resdressal Tournament consists of the following competitions under its fold-

  • Mediation-Arbitration & Arbitral Award Writing Competition: The Med-Arb Competition is a hybrid of Mediation and Arbitration.  In the initial phase, the presiding neutral third-party acts as a mediator and coaches  (or) encourages the parties towards a settlement.  In the shadow of Med-Arb, the participants first,  try and resolve the dispute through mediation, failing which the parties adopt the process of arbitration. Further, this is for the first time that a participant will be writing the award after attending the proceedings. Till date, no Moot Court Competition or any Competition has come up with this concept.
  • Negotiation Competition: In Negotiation competition, each team shall consist of an attorney and a client who will negotiate with the differing party in the most adept manner. Here where two parties in a conflict or dispute reach a settlement between themselves that they can both agree on. Negotiations are reached through discussions made between the representatives of the parties without any involvement of the third party.
  • Client Counseling Competition: The competitors conduct an initial interview with a person playing the role of the client and then address both the client’s legal and non-legal issues in Client Counseling Competition.
