Alternative Dispute Resolution Overview
term alternative dispute resolution (ADR) emcompasses a variety of
processes that are used to resolve conflicts between multiple parties,
typically without the involvement of the formal court system. ADR is
often pursued as a quicker, less costly alternative to litigation.
Courts themselves may even order ADR to settle disputes. Common forms of
ADR include negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.
Mediation and negotiation are relatively informal processes that allow the parties an opportunity to work together to reach an agreement. Mediation is a process in which the disputing parties meet with an impartial third party to solve their disagreement. Mediation is party-centered, and tends to involve negotiation in order to reach an agreement suitable to both parties. Arbitration is a formal type of ADR that resembles a trial. At the federal level, arbitration is governed by Title 9 of the U.S. Code. Additionally, at the state level, 49 states have adopted the Uniform Arbitration Act.
