The research aims to highlight and discuss the different modes of settlement of disputes in
today’s populated and overcrowded societies. The research has shown that due to expensive,
time consuming and rigid process of formal justice system (court litigation) USA, Australia, UK and even European
Union countries have preferred informal justice system (Alternative Dispute Resolution) for disputants to opt for
their solutions. The informal dispute resolution system (Alternative Dispute
Resolution) prevailing in modern countries like USA, Australia and UK is
full of benefits and most probably the main reason for their progress and
development also, and the study has shown that the system is working
successfully in these countries, therefore, it can be applied anywhere even
in the developing countries as well because this system is more sustainable
in any form than the formal justice system (court litigation).
