Keeping pace with the developed world, the provision of Alternative Dispute Resolution (hereinafter referred as ADR) has been inserted in the laws of Bangladesh long ago. Immediately after inserting the provisions, it started to play an important role in dispute resolutions resulting in reducing the number of civil cases. But it couldn't retain its momentum mainly because the lawyers are reluctant to resolve disputes through this process. And the government didn't show promptness in popularising the process or training judicial officers to encourage people to resolve disputes through ADR. Even still the legal provision relating to ADR is not comprehensive. For all these things alternative dispute resolution cannot play any important role in significantly reducing the number of civil cases in Bangladesh. There is no gainsaying that lots of cases are being resolved through alternative dispute resolution, but the number is not mentionable in comparison with the total number of running civil cases in Bangladesh.
