Mediation and other forms
of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) can NEVER replace the courts but should
be seen as part of the court system which is primarily aimed at resolving
disputes. ADR is achieving Justice by Consensus and the hope of the LMDC is
that only cases which should be in the courts get to the courts.
