About the Conference
Mediation as an Alternative Dispute Resolution is a process of resolving disputes with the help of a third neutral person who assists the parties in the dispute to reach a negotiated resolution. It is empowering every common person of the society and imparting justice in a cost-effective and expeditious manner.
Through awareness and confidence-building measures, this conference would help potential litigants as well as the general public, thereby reducing the burden on the courts. The expertise of the speakers as well as the esteemed dignitaries in the event is invaluable to the entire legal fraternity including lawyers, judges, law teachers, law students, and legal researchers.
Recent legislative changes have also placed reliance on mediation as a prominent mode of the dispute resolution process. It shows the increasing intent of the legislature to bring the same at the forefront which is also in tandem with the changing demands of the times. Better dissemination of knowledge and information regarding the process of mediation will build the faith of the general public in this process and, ultimately lead to better administration of justice.
In a dynamic country like ours, a speedy, equitable, and innovative dispute resolution system like mediation brings positive externalities for the economy, the society, the legal ecosystem, and the general prosperity of the nation as a whole.
