Abstract

Reports on the findings of a study of the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) by commercial litigators in Scotland. Analyses survey responses from commercial litigators on a range of issues, including: (1) their own knowledge of, training in, and actual experience of ADR; (2) reasons why they might recommend or decline use of ADR; (3) the outcome of ADR procedures they have used; (4) ADR as a business opportunity; (5) the role of courts in encouraging ADR; and (6) reasons why the take up of ADR in Scotland has not been greater.
