Mediation approach would cost less on all fronts, ease overloaded judicial system and speed up outcomes.  If there’s one thing the recent Johannesburg Global Pound Conference will be remembered for — other than its innovative use of technology, including real-time voting on key issues — it’s the sense that the time has come for alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to take root in SA’s civil and commercial dispute resolution spheres.

I’ve heard a number of evangelists of the mediation world, most recently Lee Jay Berman in a talk SCMA sponsored this week in San Diego, talk about the seemingly limitless future of the mediation process.
