The Chief Justice (CJ), Mrs. Justice Georgina Theodora Wood has implored Ghanaians to explore the benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in dispute
settlements, to help ease the current pressure on the court system.
This is the second Chief Justice in two weeks to recommend ADR to their country, as well as explain its benefits.
This took place at a two-day training workshop where Wood addressed participants heralding the new ADR Act of 2010 Act (798), which replaces the Arbitration Act of 1961,
Act 38, which regulated the settlement of disputes by arbitration, and
to educate certified ADR practitioners on how to effectively utilise
the law to bring about peaceful settlements of disputes.
It would be great if this sort of thing became a trend throughout the world.
