Greetings from The Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution (CADR), Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab.
We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.
January has been an eventful month for the ADR world!
The revised International Chamber of Commerce 2021 Arbitration Rules came into force starting 1st January 2021. France’s highest court upheld the enforcement of the annulled Cairo award. Additionally, the apex court of India held that the High Courts must exercise their power to interfere with arbitration procedures under Article 226 and 227 of the Constitution only under exceptional circumstances.
The mediation world has witnessed some significant developments as well. A Social Service Organization, Catholic Charities Hawaii, rolled out a relief program to help tenants avoid eviction by providing payments for unpaid rent and mediation services. A High Court in Ireland urged a family embroiled in a dispute over hotel business to make use of mediation mechanisms for solving the same.
All this, and more, in the Newsletter for the month of January!
It’s been a busy month for us at CADR too, as we continue serving the ADR Community with events and research. The CADR blog witnessed yet another successful month with write-ups on topics like the recent landmark judgment in Enka v. Chubb or the usage of Blockchain technology in international commercial arbitrations. The blog continues to accept submissions on a rolling basis. We are also all set to soon welcome teams from across the country to the 3rd edition of the Sports and Entertainment Law Mediation Competition, 2021!

The Newsletter initiative began with the observation that there exists a lacuna in the provision of information relating to ADR to the practicing community, and we wanted to provide a solution to the same. In keeping with that, we are glad to have many practitioners and students subscribe to the Newsletter and the Blog after the launch of the first issue.
To subscribe to the CADR Newsletter, you may send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, you may subscribe to the CADR Blog via our homepage and you will receive a notification whenever we launch a volume of the Newsletter.
As always, we await with bated breath for your feedback on our Newsletter. We hope to hear from you soon!
