Maintaining and enhancing the integrity of the ADR process: from principles to practice through people

Legal services Alternative dispute resolution Australia

In this report, the National Alternative Dispute Resolution Advisory Council (NADRAC) canvasses particular issues that support the integrity of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes, and that are identified in the Terms of Reference. These are: conduct obligations, rules about confidentiality and inadmissibility of communications within ADR processes, and immunity of ADR practitioners from being sued.

The report explains NADRAC’s understanding of the breadth of the concept of integrity as it applies to ADR processes, canvasses the views of interested parties about the integrity of ADR processes and how this might best be protected, and makes recommendations about possible legislative intervention to further support the integrity of ADR processes in certain contexts.
