How does ADR affect the work of lawyers? Do attorneys find benefits in using ADR? Does ADR form workgroups or provide formal structure to the civil justice system? The implications of answers to these questions might transform how scholars have viewed civil justice systems and how ADR affects civil justice. COURT-CONNECTED ADR An interesting, institutional court reform movement is court-connected alternative dispute resolution (ADR). The history of ADR in America is often a story of groups who turn to the settlement of disputes in a fashion that is outside the formal authority of law (Aeurbach, 1983).
We can learn a lot about how ADR and the civil justice system are linked, then, by operating from a neo-institutionalist framework. Under new institutionalism, the addition of ADR to civil courts can be viewed against three fundamental propositions that March and Olsen (1984: 739) emphasize: the distribution of preferences, resources, and the constraints of the rules of the game. First, ADR adoption can be viewed as a function of the rational interests of diverse actors in both the ADR movement at large and "elites" within the local legal culture.
As such, descriptive and explanatory research on ADR has been interdisciplinary and has recently moved toward efforts at program evaluation. One idea for incorporating the role of ADR with that of civil court systems is to study them together under a single unified framework. As Trial Courts & Mediation 27 noted earlier, such a study would necessarily focus on three questions. What does civil justice look like as a system? How does ADR function in the general civil justice system? How does an institutional change in civil courts like ADR affect civil justice outcome, system norms, and the behavior of system actors?
