Alternative Dispute Resolutions (ADR) is a means of resolving disputes outside the courtroom. It includes negotiation, conciliation, evaluation, mediation and arbitration. Mediation is also an informal alternative to litigation. Mediation is performed by trained negotiators who unite opposing parties to settle differences. In contrast, arbitration is a simplified version of a trial involving examination by simplified rules of evidence and an arbitral panel. The expansion of international trade has led to a wide variety of international disputes. Resolving such disputes can be time consuming, frustrating, and costly. ADR has been used increasingly to resolves many of disputes in a shorter period of time with lower cost.
