dc.description.abstract This research project examines Alternative Dispute Resolution; the most frequently used alternative method to the traditional litigation proceedings. The most popular forms of ADR were defined and examined, concentrating particularly on the processes of mediation and arbitration and their economic and time benefits. This assessment of ADR included the examination of the history of ADR in the legal system, the current weaknesses in the Adversarial system of justice, criticisms and benefits of the ADR process, and the statistical analysis of the current effectiveness of ADR. Through this evaluation it was projected that because of ADR's benefits of brevity and less restrictive economic cost, ADR will form a partnership with the adversarial system and become the dominant form of settling civil disputes.
