Abstract

A multi-door court is the epicenter of dispute resolution referral and assessment, while multi-option system assumes that disputants will attempt to resolve disputes before filing court proceedings. Multi-option and multidoor processes work well if they are supported via mechanisms such as triaging, dispute counseling, and education and by stronger obligations in terms of participants to use them.

Keywords: multi-door, multi-option, access to justice, adr, mediation, civil procedure, developments, innovation, future
