The Mapping ADR blog is an initiative of Jindal Global Law School, Sonipat, India (“JGLS”). Pursuant to the growing importance of alternative dispute settlement (“ADR”), the blog seeks to provide an avenue for students, faculty and practitioners to engage in research and discussion on latest developments in the field of ADR. The objective of the blog is to critically explore issues both specific to the Indian legal arena as well as increasingly relevant transnational alternative dispute settlement. The blog will host articles, interviews and recent updates on ADR.  

Practitioners, academics and students from within and outside JGLS are all welcome to contribute to the blog. Please refer to the Submission page for details.
