Alternative dispute resolution

A generic term describing various methods used to resolve disputes out of court.

This is a generic term that describes a number of methods used to resolve disputes out of court, including negotiation, conciliation, mediation and the many types of arbitration.

The common denominator of all ADR methods is that they are faster, less formalistic, cheaper and often less adversarial than a court trial. In recent years the term Alternative Dispute Resolution has lost favour in some circles and ADR has come to mean Appropriate Dispute Resolution.
