NUJS ADR Society releases comments on the Draft Mediation Bill, 2021.

NUJS is happy to share that the NUJS ADR Society has drafted, and released comments on the Draft Mediation Bill, 2021 and has sent across the final document for review and consideration on 12th December 2021. A team of student researchers was selected to conduct a section-wise analysis of the Bill by comparing national, and foreign jurisprudence, refer to various judgements, and study scholarly articles as a part of this exercise. As the world takes heed of the relevance, and potential of alternative dispute resolution, India stands at a crucial jurisprudential crossroad. With the introduction of the Draft Mediation Bill, 2021, the Indian government acknowledged the windows of opportunity and growth that mediation as a means of ADR offered to the judiciary, the field of dispute resolution, and the country as a whole. The ADR Society humbly contributes to this ideology by sharing comments on this Bill. We extend our gratitude to our Vice-Chancellor Sir, Professor Dr. NK Chakraborti for the constant support. We would also like to thank the Society's Faculty Advisor Professor Sampa Karmakar, Assistant Professor at The West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata along with expert advisors, Anirban Chakraborty Sir, Associate Professor at NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad Dr. Dr. Sarfaraz Ahmed Khan, Assistant Professor at The WBNUJS Kolkata and Former Director at Symbiosis Law School and Mr. Jawad A J Sir, Digital Dispute Resolution Specialist for the continued help, and guidance provided by them. Lastly, we thank all the students who were a part of this exercise. The NUJS Alternative Dispute Resolution Society, plans to explore different areas of ADR and bring this knowledge to budding lawyers around the globe. It hopes to continue doing so through capacity building, discussion, and collaboration. The Recommendations can be accessed at
