April 2021 Issue of the Newsletter out now!

Dear Reader,

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.

We are elated to bring to you the Fourth Issue of the Third Volume of the CADR Newsletter.

The Higher Regional Court Frankfurt held that the European Court of Justice’s Achmea decision is applicable to other Intra-EU BITs as well, the European Commission suspended the ratification of the Comprehensive Investment Agreement (CIA) with China, and the Malaysian High Court appliedprinciples on arbitrator bias and an arbitrator’s duty of disclosure as restated by the UK’s Supreme Court in Halliburton. 

The Mediation world has witnessed some noteworthy developments as well. To raise international mediation standards, five international mediation training bodies have reached an understanding and signed an MOU in this regard in Singapore,  Human Relations Commission Mediation Service, which puts a system in place to address issues amongst neighbours has been launched in Ohio, and the UK government has launched a new mediation scheme to help families resolve disputes outside of court, which will be administered by the Family Mediation Council. 
All this, and more, in the Newsletter for the month of April!

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 Emergency Arbitration and the arbitrability of debt recovery disputes. The blog continues to accept submissions on a rolling basis.

Follow this space for details!

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 adrc@rgnul.ac.in. 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!
For any other query, please feel free to contact us. For more information about our activities, please follow/like us on Instagram, FacebookTwitterLinkedIn, and our Blog.
