The "third path" of justice would constitute a theoretical approach and a proposal. Having ascertained the exhaustion of exclusive systems - in the social, economic, political, thought and justice areas - the formal structuring of a model of justice is proposed, which, without foregoing the positive aspects of the current justice administration system, is built on the foundations of free will, trust, knowledge and technological development. This brief treatise deals with programme lines and courses of action of ADR/ODR - alternative methods or processes for dispute resolution for the catalytic controversies of a phenomenon which has spontaneously emerged -with the aim of yielding elements capable of formulating this new system, a synthesis of two which, paradoxically, were operative until fairly recently.
Keywords: ADR, ODR, alternative systems for conflict resolution, principles and protocols, mediation, arbitration, rela-tional justice, self-regulating systems, multi-component systems, confidentiality, interoperability, third path, holistic method
