Mediation and Arbitration
In the 1980s, there was, relatively speaking, little activity on the mediation and arbitration fronts in Singapore. The Singapore courts were saddled with serious backlogs of cases. Fast forward to the modern day, such courst backlogs are behind us and the Singapore judiciary has achieved international standards in terms of efficiency and access to justice. Arbitration can no longer be regarded as a backwater or an "alternative" to litigation as a dispute resolution mechanism. Mediation activities also have beugeoned over the years such that it has become a mainstay in the dispute resolution landscape.
