Going to court is expensive, risky, time consuming and disruptive. It is estimated that up to 10% of public sector revenues are lost to disputes. It is CfJ's view that a government organisation should not be compelled to go to court, if there is a better alternative for the organisation and those it works with.
Where this is in the interests of the parties, CfJ believes a public sector organisation should have the right to use ADR (alternative dispute resolution).
CfJ is working to secure this right for the benefit of the public sector and the wider community.
We welcome the support of all those interested in improving dispute resolution in the UK.

ADR puts you in control. It removes the risk, disruption and cost of resolving disputes through the courts and sorts out problems quickly and effectively in the best interests of your organisation.
