Abstract

Access to ADR can be conceptualised in a number of ways. Some commentators focus on the court or the legal profession as a central access point for disputes. While this may seem natural for lawyers and judges, such an approach fails to account for the vast majority of disputes – approximately 80 per cent – that never see a lawyer, let alone a court. Other commentators focus on private or community-based applications of ADR as well as transactional applications of mediation such as contract negotiations. Yet others analyse ADR from the perspective of particular stakeholder groups such as industry, insurers, minority groups, women, ADR institutions and the justice system.
