About the Centre
The Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution, RGNUL (CADR-RGNUL) was established in the year 2018 as a Centre dedicated to research and capacity-building in ADR. One of the foremost aims was to fill voids that plague existing literature and bridge the often-daunting gap between the academia and practicalities of a career in ADR.
About the CADR Blog
The CADR Blog is aimed towards integrating insights from the professional and the academic world. To that extent, the Blog publishes articles on contemporary issues plaguing and developing in ADR.

In keeping with the informal tenor of Blog posts, unlike research articles, we prefer hyperlinks over footnotes and endnotes. Use of footnotes/endnotes should be limited to offline sources only. We request the authors to use “The Bluebook, A Uniform System of Citation” (20th Ed.) for the same.
The blogs are invited on a rolling basis. All submissions must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Submission for CADR Blog: [Name of Article]”.
