CJC ADR Working Group Final Report

The ADR working group of the Civil Justice Council has published its final report.

Highlights include stopping short of recommending a ‘presumption’ that parties will agree to alternative dispute resolution as a condition for issuing proceedings (that is, no mandatory mediation) and setting up a Judicial/ADR liaison committee.

The Master of the Rolls, Sir Terence Etherton said ‘The working group is to be commended on producing an impressive report that proposes a number of reforms to the current system’.

Brick Court’s Bill Wood QC and Chair of the Working Group:

We have done our best to set out what seem to us the most promising options for the future. We are particularly pleased that our proposal for continuing liaison between judges and ADR professionals is already being acted upon by the Master of the Rolls
