About the Program

Disputes are inevitable in society, which requires a robust dispute resolution mechanism to deliver justice. The Indian dispute resolution mechanism consists of Courts, Tribunals, and Alternative Dispute Resolution tools (including Arbitration, Mediation, Conciliation, Lok Adalats, etc.). Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms have been demonstrated to be effective compared to litigation because the former provide the advantage of speedy disposal of the disputes and assists in restoring relations between the disputants. Over the last two decades, there has been momentum to encourage their usage among the legal fraternity and businesses — domestic or international.

The program will cover topics that are important for professionals in any field who deal with conflicts on a regular basis, as well as to academicians who aspire to deepen their knowledge. The Program faculty will include experienced practitioners and academicians who will supplement classroom learning with their own experiences and provide a comprehensive understanding of how arbitration and mediation work as dispute resolution mechanisms in domestic and international trade disputes.
