Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) means the resolving of disputes by parties through methods other than adjudication by Courts. ADR includes arbitration, mediation, conciliation and referral to Panchayats. The current law on the subject in Pakistan is the Arbitration Act 1940, which requires several amendments to truly maximise its utility in decreasing the workload on the lower and superior courts. This Discussion Paper was authored by Mr. Shahid Hamid, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of Pakistan to inform the work of the Parliamentary Caucus on Rule of Law.
