Many barristers have further qualifications in a variety of ADR processes, where they act as an independent third person to help people resolve their disputes. ADR processes do not include judicial determinations such as decisions made by a court or tribunal, rather dispute management identifies where disputes are and aims to manage them early and effectively.
