Dispute Resolution in England and Wales: Call for Evidence

The Adjudication Society notes that Government is collecting evidence from individuals or organisations with information on dispute resolution whether within or outside of the courts system to support the development of more effective dispute resolution mechanisms. This call for evidence is wide in scope and we consider includes Adjudication:

“Throughout this Call for Evidence we refer to “dispute resolution” processes as encompassing all methods of resolving disputes in the civil, family and administrative jurisdictions, apart from litigation. These include, but are not limited to, mediation, conciliation, arbitration, Ombudsmen schemes and similar, whether conducted via online platforms or with the assistance of other technology or not. We are not seeking views on the operation of the court service, except in so far as it engages with these other forms of out-of-court resolution processes.”

If you would like to complete the online survey or email responses to the questions in the call for evidence, please use disputeresolution.enquiries.evidence@justice.gov.uk 

The call for evidence closes 30 September 2021. If you have queries please contact Hamish Lal or Tim Willis
