Abstract

Traditionally, resolution of both civil and criminal disputes has taken place in the con text of formal proceedings in the courts. Commencing with a brief summary of the history of alternative approaches, the author discusses programs presently in opera tion in Canada aimed at achieving justice following procedures which are less formal, less expensive and ultimately more satisfying for the parties. The roles played by diver sion, mediation, conciliation and arbitration in obtaining these goals are also analysed.
