Understanding Alternative Dispute Resolution

While Courts and judiciary are the recognised pillars of India's legal system, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is gradually becoming a preferred method of resolving commercial and personal disputes. Be it a multi-million dollar cross-border construction industry dispute or a purely domestic dispute between husband and wife, ADR techniques are applicable in wide variety of contexts with many benefits over traditional litigation. However, many lawyers, consultants and professionals struggle to approach conflict resolution correctly and thus lack the required skills.

Possess property that you wish to give to a loved one upon your passing? Want to assign a guardian to your children during your absence? A Will is your fix to make sure there is no mix! The common misconception is that your belongings, upon your passing, will directly go to your next of kin, but this is not the case. In India, households have disputes with regard to asset distribution. Thus, creating a Will ensures that the asset distribution in the family is as per your wish and there are no disputes. Most of the times, lawyers draft the final Will of a person, making it important for them to understand the concept well. This course dispels common misconceptions on drafting a Will. Terminologies associated with creation of Wills, along with types and clauses that make a Will valid, are discussed in great detail. Sample formats of Wills have also been provided to help you understand and provide you pointers on how to draft your own Will. The course is also helpful for lawyers as they are able to advice those in need.
