'Mapping ADR' is a student-run research platform aimed at facilitating discussion on the contours of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms.

A key aspect of this platform is the Mapping ADR Blog, a focused and convenient avenue for those who are interested in writing and are keen to publish ideas on contemporary issues surrounding ADR practice. Given the growing interest in the legal fraternity in developments on ADR and its increasing prominence, discussion on it is more relevant now than ever.

Its aim has been to critically explore issues both specific to the Indian legal arena as well as increasingly relevant transnational alternative dispute settlement.

The editorial board consists of 20+ dedicated students who work under the guidance of Professor Ashwin Mishra to publish original and thought-provoking literature.
