There is a reference to ADR procedures in almost every court and tribunal in Australia. In many instances ADR processes have become an integral part of the work of courts and tribunals. In other cases, while ADR may be referred to in legislation, practice directions and decisions of courts, ADR practice is not uniform. The use made of ADR processes will depend upon the individual preferences of those within the particular court and tribunal.
