KIIT School of law organized virtual lecture session on 29th October 2021 afternoon. The lecture was given by Prof. (Dr.) M.R.K. Prasad,. Dispute resolution methods are of five types which come under consensual and third party. Dispute Resolution needs to go from narrow to broader goals for the prevention of conflicts in courts. There are four types of conflicts with two types of indicators of conflicts, simultaneously also having various consequences for participating in conflicts. The difference between litigation and mediation was also covered. The topic of mediation was discussed in detail following its communication, stages, key ethical
issues, and lastly the important points to remember while mediating.


There are five types of dispute resolution methods that come under consensual and third party. In consensual are negotiation, mediation, and conciliation while
arbitration and litigation it is the third party. ADR is required to move from narrow to broad goals of dispute resolution. At first, it might just be right or wrong or a win or loss situation. It might also be personal or for business purposes. Lastly, it should generate a win-win situation where both parties are content so that they could contribute to the relationship community needs. To better understand conflicts it becomes important for knowing their types which are intrapersonal or intrapsychic conflict, interpersonal conflict, intragroup conflict, and intergroup conflict. The first indicator of conflict is when something is wrong or dysfunctional while the other indicator creates a destructive scenario. There are also negative consequences if we don’t follow ADR methods such as distort perceptions, emotionally charged, decreased communication, magnified differences, etc. There is a difference between mediation and litigation. It is compulsory in litigation while voluntary in mediation. Evidence is required in litigation while in mediation it is based on the benefits of both parties etc. Mediation is an informal process where a selected person acts as a middle man to negotiate between disputing parties. The mediator helps both parties to communicate with each other. There are 12 stages of mediation each needed to be followed step by step. There are also key issues that should be in a mediation process which are impartiality, confidentiality, competency, etc. One should always remember while mediating that negotiators need to be motivated and also proper counselling is very much essential.
