    Queenielyn Caballero Japan Inappropriate mechanisms for dispute-resolution Nature The adversary system: dissatisfaction with traditional method of dispute resolution exists because it can be inappropriate for effective justice. Cause Adversary system: Two opponents who disagree engage in correspondence. This leads to frustration, and invariably litigation follows. Pre-trial steps assist to achieve an out-of-court settlement (OCS), but the mere issue of a writ is not always a solution (discovery: all documents disclosed but can be complicated and costly). The role of parties and legal representatives is to advocate claims are one-sided and non-objective. Goal is to 'win at-all-costs'. Effect Delays: Length of pre-trial stage (eg 3 years) means increased cost, lack of motivation/interest as well as being inconvenient. Can be 1-2 years prior to setting date for trial, which can mean a 4-year delay overall for some. Backlog is too big; the process is too slow. Costs: Steps produce time-consuming process (increases legal representation costs). Even if successful, plaintiff may not recover all costs (only 50-80% of costs). Complexity: Discovery stage is too time-consuming. Difficult preparation and analysis. Reforms: Expand use of ADR techniques and forums (negotiation, arbitration and mediation). Extend compulsory inclusion of ADR clauses into contracts. Expand centres for commercial dispute resolution (eg State Insurance Office Centre - consumer disputes).
