Justices Ubaka, Peter, 7 Others attend ADR Conference for Judges in Ogun

The Concept of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an old and effective practice in the sphere of law. It has been used successfully for thousands of years. In this era of globalization, where trade is happening at a global level, Alternative Dispute Resolution has been growing in use. Instead of litigation, organizations are choosing Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) to resolve business-related disputes, because this method is flexible, time-effective, and cost-efficient.
