About Us

It has been observed meaningfully over a period that every culture, every society, every nation has some or the other ways of solving the disputes faced by their citizens. Many a time and opt, the longer and more prosperous the lineage, the more advanced and diverse the mechanisms. Truth be told, India is a nation of many cultures and hence several dispute resolution mechanisms had evolved and been customized over a period of time. We had the dispute settlement mechanisms tailor-made for different segments of society and are still in existence in numerous regions like the panchayats, which exercise social influence within geographical boundaries. With the advent of British colonization, these varied dispute resolution mechanisms by and large paved way to formal courts of law based on Anglo-Saxon Jurisprudence. In the wake of plenty of cases pending before the courts and the long-time duration taken while adjudicating upon the matters, the businesses and economy of India has been adversely impacted. In order to fill in this void so created, Alternate dispute mechanisms have become the need of the hour which includes Arbitration, Mediation, Conciliation and Lok Adalat. Therefore, such mechanisms have turned out to be a blessing in disguise for resolving the civil disputes outside the courts. Keeping in view all such emerging needs of the society thereby assisting them find timely and cost-effective solutions, the ACADR at the central campus of Alliance University has been established.
