ADR由多种类型组成，因此它在国内、国际、商业、消费和商业事务中更通用。ADR的不同程序有谈判程序、调解程序、调解和仲裁程序。这些程序中的每一个都被认为比法院命令的争端解决程序具有更好的优势。本文对“通过法庭程序而不是其他争端解决方式(ADR)更有效地解决国内和国际商业、消费者和商业事务中的争端”这一说法进行了反驳。通过利用现有的文献综述，该工作试图表明，通过使用替代争端解决方案，国内和国际冲突得到了更好的解决(Delgado, et al . 1985)。使用ADR后，时间、金钱、权力不对称问题、和解的恢复等诸多方面都得到了改善。虽然法院的干预和法律部门的意见形式仍然是必要的，但这一增加使ADR的决议形式更好。
ADR is made of many types and hence it is more versatile to use in the case of domestic, international, business, consumer and commercial matters. Some of the different processes of ADR are that of the negotiation process, the conciliation processes, mediation and arbitration. Each of these processes is seen to have better advantages than a court ordered dispute resolution. This essay is written by adopting a position of rebutting the statement that “It is more effective to resolve disputes in domestic and international business, consumer and commercial matters through court proceedings rather than alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”). By making use of existing literature review, the work attempts to show that domestic and international conflicts are better resolved by making use of the alternative dispute resolution (Delgado, et al 1985). Time, money, power asymmetry issues, recovery of settlements and many more other aspects becomes better by using ADR. Although court interventions and advice form from the legal department are still a necessity, the ADR form of resolution is made better by this addition.
ADR in Australia
In Australia in the context of family and neighbourhood disputes and the use of ADR has seen favourable results. Especially in the case of mediations it is seen that there are much favourable results in community justice. As far as studies concerned in Australia and other international nations such as the United States, the United Kingdom etc., it is a very noticeable fact. Alternative dispute resolution is defined as the process where the participants of the dispute come together in other to have their dispute resolved by means of the assistance offered by a neutral third party. Then it happens that the persons will systematically isolate the dispute issues, and will attempt to present a consensual settlement based on available factors for both the parties involved.
