Appropriate Dispute Resolution is a civilised way of resolving a range of differences and conflicts, with a collection of processes used to resolve conflicts or disputes informally and confidentially. Appropriate Dispute Resolution provides a variety of processes that help parties to resolve disputes without a trial. Appropriate Dispute Resolution processes for civil cases typically include interest-based negotiation, mediation and arbitration. People at various relationship levels encounter differences which if not handled appropriately can escalate into unresolved conflict.

Appropriate Dispute Resolution is usually less formal, less expensive, not adversarial and less time-consuming than a court trial. ADR can also give people more opportunity to determine when and how their disputes will be resolved.
