The Civil Justice Council today published the interim report of its ADR working group. The report explores the role of the various different forms of ADR in civil disputes and examines the failure of ADR to become an integral part of the justice system. It tackles the thorny issue of whether ADR should be compulsory and what compulsion might entail. The working group was chaired by Bill Wood QC, the ADR representative on the CJC.
