February 2021 Issue of the Newsletter now out!

Dear Reader,

Greetings from The Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution (CADR), Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab.

We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

We are elated to bring to you the Second Issue of the Third Volume of the CADR Newsletter.

The month of February has witnessed a great many exciting developments in the ADR universe.

The new IBA Rules on the Taking of Evidence in International Arbitration have been published, an SCC Tribunal dismissed a USD 6 billion Energy Charter Treaty claim against Ukraine. Additionally, the Supreme Court of India has held that the presence of an arbitration clause does not oust the jurisdiction under Article 226 in all cases.

The Mediation world has observed some noteworthy developments as well. The California Court of Appeal in a case expressed its inclination towards making pre-trial mediation mandatory for settlement of Trust Disputes, China’s Supreme People’s Court (SPC) reported a huge rise in the applications submitted to the country’s online Mediation platform. All this, and more, in the Newsletter for the month of February!

It’s been a busy month for us at CADR too, as we continue serving the ADR Community with events and research. CADR organized The RGNUL Intra Mediation & Client Counselling Competition 2021 virtually from 19th-21st February.

The CADR blog witnessed yet another successful month with write-ups on topics like the recent landmark judgment in Government of India v. Vedanta Ltd. and the “presumption of transparency” in Investment Arbitration. The blog continues to accept submissions on a rolling basis.

The Newsletter initiative began with the observation that there exists a lacuna in the provision of information relating to ADR to the practicing community, and we wanted to provide a solution to the same. In keeping with that, we are glad to have many practitioners and students subscribe to the Newsletter and the Blog after the launch of the first issue.

To subscribe to the CADR Newsletter, you may send us an email at Additionally, you may subscribe to the CADR Blog via our homepage and you will receive a notification whenever we launch a volume of the Newsletter.
