Magistrates, registrars, judges and other staff of the judicial service from the Upper East, Upper West and the Northern regions have begun a four-day training course in Tamale on Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).

Topics to be discussed included "Emerging trends in justice delivery", "Advantages and disadvantages of judicial resolution disputes", "Understanding interests", "Communication in negotiations", "Approaching multi-party negotiations" and "The roles of mediators" in conflict resolution.

The Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) is sponsoring the programme that is also meant to give participants better understanding on legal mandate for ADR.

Madam Mercy Ohene, the Director of the Judicial Training Institute (JTI), said the training was meant to offer an opportunity to beneficiaries to be able to resolve disputes amicably other than courtroom trial.

She said mediation played a vital role in disputes and stressed the importance of the training indicating that it would reduce the number cases in courts, if the ADR systems were well established.

Madam Ohene said there were always a "Win/win" solutions in the ADR settlements.
