Pre-litigation ADR schemes, external dispute resolution schemes and changes in the community and related schemes, as well as processes that are more closely related to the litigation system, are tracked, explored and analysed. This supports ADR practitioners and all those involved in dispute resolution to make effective, informed decisions about process choices and options.
