Significance of Online Dispute Resolution in India - by Chitranjali Negi, Advocate
Online dispute resolution is a branch of dispute resolution which uses technology to facilitate the resolution of disputes between parties. It primarily involves negotiation, mediation or arbitration, or a combination of all three. ODR is concerned with the civilized (i.e. peaceful) resolution of disputes between private parties, and, secondly, with the prevention of such conflicts through the provision of legal certainty. National legal systems fulfill the former function by offering plaintiffs to litigate disputes before State courts which exercise mandatory jurisdiction over defendants, and the latter by making the litigation process public, thus allowing for the proliferation of precedent, as well as by the enactment of codifications of rules of law.

Editorial - Mr. Manish Arora
Being a decider of fates, which judges are, is not as comfortable a position as those who have never been in that position might imagine. It is a huge responsibility to shoulder, and even the shoulders with the wisest of heads on them might sometimes find it too heavy to carry, given the stringent demands of justice.
