About the Conference

Conflicts and disputes have been a part and parcel of human life since time immemorial. We cannot avoid conflicts but what is more important is how we manage or handle such conflicts. War/Legal battle is one of the methods of resolution, but we have learnt with our past experiences that it is a costly affair and often unsatisfactory.

Arbitration, Mediation, Negotiation, Conciliation, Lok Adalat, Settlement etc. are the various methods for settling disputes which have received worldwide recognition and are applied successfully, as they settle disputes in a speedy and amicable manner.

Arbitration and mediation are necessary in the present time, especially in India. The entire objective of ADR is to bring speedy justice and to reduce the backlogs of Public Interest Litigation and many Criminal cases so that the Judges are free to apply their minds and devote their time to other important matters having National & Constitutional Significance.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an alternative to the formal legal system. It is an alternative to litigation. At present, the judiciary is clogged with over 3 crore cases pending in various courts all over the country. The existing judicial system finds 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”.


The Conference aims to fill void that plague existing literature and bridge the often daunting gap between the academia and practicalities issues in ADR. It strives to generate interest in ADR as an effective means of dispute resolution.
