Alternative Dispute Resolution refers to a broad range of mechanisms and processes designed to assist parties in resolving differences. These alternative mechanisms are not intended to supplant court adjudication, but rather to supplement it. Alternative Dispute Resolution provides an opportunity to resolve conflicts creatively and effectively, finding the process that best handles a particular dispute.The author advocates for introducing the alternative mechanisms in the Bulgarian legislation and legal practice.
