"Alternative Dispute Resolution Forum" is a forum where civil disputes are heard by by way of mediation, conciliation, arbitration or other customary ways. It is a means of getting an easy way out to the complicated legal procedures and a cost effective way of resolving disputes. The rationale behind resorting to ADR is to maintain the on going relationship between the parties in dispute. By Peterson KEWA (LLB-UPNG)- Trainee Lawyer (LTI -Papua New Guinea)
