ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Conflicts and disputes co-exist in the society. We cannot avoid conflicts but what is more important is how we manage or handle such conflicts. Legal recourse is one of the methods of conflict resolution, however is a protracted and costly affair and often unsatisfactory. Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an alternative to the adversarial system of legal proceedings. At present, the Judiciary is clogged with over 3 crore cases pending in various courts all over the country. Covid-19 pandemic has further posed challenges to the court proceedings.  The existing judicial system finds it difficult to cope with the ever-increasing burden of litigation.
