Guest Lecture on “Overview of ADR as a mechanism for dispute resolution, existing trends & recent developments“
In the current legal scenario, according to a Law Ministry data, the Indian judiciary has 19 judges per 10 lakh people on an average; the data also states that the judiciary faces a combined shortage of over 6,000 judges, including over 5,000 in the lower courts itself. Parallel to this situation, as a result of the influence of globalization there is a whirlwind increase in conflicts amongst the parties which require speedy and effective resolution which the traditional judicial system failed to deliver. In this context, dispute resolution through arbitration, mediation, look-adults & negotiation are seen as more effective, less time consuming and hassle-free alternate form of dispute resolution in India. Taking everything into consideration, Alternative Dispute Resolution is the next big thing in Legal scenario, Therefore, Oriental School of Law, Indore proposes to establish “Alternative Dispute Resolution Cell.”
