While the historical methods of resolving the disputes e.g. civil litigation etc. are still very much intact and effective but their limitations have also been highlighted in modern age.
This has given rise to the idea of finding alternate methods of dispute resolution or alternate dispute resolution (ADR). In this paper we will look at what is ‘Alternate Dispute Resolution’, what are its types, how it evolved and what is its effectiveness towards access to justice. We will also see if there are any challenges confronting alternate dispute resolution.
When a dispute is resolved through non-conventional methods it is knows as alternate dispute resolution. It “can be defined as the resolution of disputes other than rendered by the judicial system”. (Rosa, Santa, 2009) There are many ways in which a dispute can be alternatively resolved but following are the most commonly used ones:
When the parties to a dispute appoint a neutral referee to hear their dispute and make the decision it is knows as arbitration. The person working as the referee is known as the arbitrator. There can be one or more arbitrator in arbitration. Arbitration is mostly used when there is an arbitration clause in contract between two parties stating that in case of a dispute both parties would go to the arbitrator instead of going through the tradition legal forums. (Lew, Mistelis and Kroll, 2003)
Mediation is a system to reach a consensus among conflicting parties. In mediation a mediator is appointed with the consent of all parties. The mediator tries to talk to concerned parties both in the presence of each other and alone as well. Mediation, as a process of reaching a decision, falls short of arbitration as the status of mediator is only to facilitate the dialogue between parties and not make a final decision regarding the dispute. (Stitt, Allan, 2004)

The success or failure of a particular event or a concert largely depends upon an event manager. An event manager is mainly accountable for planning an event preparing effective safety measures and ensuring appropriate coordination with the staff for successful completion of an event.
The thesis statement of this paper would be holding is that the law of contract and tort law are similar in nature and it is, therefore, difficult to distinguish between the two legal concepts. The researcher will also make an earnest attempt to evaluate the statement in terms of ADR’s ability as a viable alternative to the court system.
Second, there is the consideration that both parties need to contribute (Miller & Jentz, 2004). The lessor would let me rent his apartment, the rental fee of which I had to pay on a monthly basis. Third, all the formal requisites were stipulated in the written lease contract.
This paper will investigate both legal venues and allow the reader to interpret their own opinion through he compiled research.
To begin this research correctly, a proper definition of a "homestead exemption" law or clause needs to be addressed. What a homestead clause is, in actuality, is a legally protective clause that offers exemption from creditors for a least a partial amount of value of the homestead (Texas Politics).
In many states, if both parties enter into an agreement that is fully discernible by the laws of that state then they are both expected to uphold their end of the agreement. If one does not do so then a contingency can occur which can make the sales contract fall into a null and void contract (Reality Times, 2004).
It is my opinion that candidate two has had quantifiable time to grow and learn from his past mistake. After all, he was just a kid when the crime occurred and according to the Youth Justice System, many teenagers go through a period of defiant behavior that sometimes involves a deviant act.
As the author of the essay puts it, Golden Rule or British Rule of statutory interpretation gives authority to the judge to dismiss the literal meaning of a word in order to prevent passing an illogical ruling. It is emphasized that Golden rule will qualify a literal rule in a case where the literal rule is not applied where doing so will lead o injustice.
