Why join this Virtual Experience Programme?

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is increasingly being utilized to resolve disputes that would otherwise result in litigation. One of the primary reasons that parties may prefer to resolve their differences via ADR is that, unlike adversarial litigation, ADR procedures are often collaborative and allow the parties to understand each other's positions. ADR also allows the parties to come up with more creative solutions that a court may not be legally allowed to impose.
