Call for Chapter by Centre for Research in Alternative Dispute Resolution, NUSRL: Submit Now!


Situated in Ranchi, the capital city of Jharkhand, National University of Study and Research in Law (NUSRL) was established to develop a holistic perspective of legal education in all its manifestations, particularly advocacy, judicial and legal institutional services, legislation, law reforms and research in allied areas.


The Centre for Research in Alternative Dispute Resolution, NUSRL (CRADR-NUSRL) is being established as a Centre dedicated to research and capacity-building in ADR and will be the newest addition to the long list of respectable research centres functioning in the University.

One of its foremost aims is to fill voids that plague existing literature and bridge the often-daunting gap between the academia and practicalities of a career in ADR.

CRADR – Upcoming Book on Alternative Dispute Resolution 

As the legal and practical aspects of Alternative Dispute Resolution, an ever-growing efficacious, speedy and cost-effective mechanism of dispute resolution, are often ignored and not extensively written about, the upcoming book aims to initiate a discourse on the pressing and contemporary issues in arbitration practice in India, and present novel and innovative solutions to the issues faced by all the stakeholders.


There is no set theme, however, the Chapters must address the key issues pertaining to ADR and related contemporary issues.
