Alternative and Online Dispute Resolution
Methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), like mediation and arbitration, are flexible tools that, even during a pandemic, can provide litigants and backlogged courts some much-needed relief. Mediation is a process in which a third-party neutral—the mediator—helps parties arrive at mutually agreeable solutions to conflict outside of court. Mediation typically offers a range of potential advantages compared to trying a lawsuit before a judge or jury, such as cost and time savings, the parties’ ability to control the outcome of their case, confidentiality, certainty, reduced stress, and overall flexibility.
