The genesis of this blog derives inspiration from the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot and the lectures in Alternative Dispute Resolution by Mr. Daniel Mathew, a member of faculty at NUJS. This is not to suggest that either Mr. Mathew or the moot has any affiliation to the blog. The views expressed on this blog are solely ours.

While participating in the 16th Vis moot in 2009 and while coaching the NUJS teams for the 17th Vis moot and 7th Vis (East) Moot, I fell in love with the concept of arbitration. This semester during the ADR classes, Mr. Mathew would throw open at least one question each day which triggered heated discussions and provoked thought.

When Rukmini, my teammate in three moots and friend, bought the idea of starting an ADR blog, Lex Arbitri was born.

This blog is meant to be a forum where we discuss our take on a number of questions in ADR, several of them originally raised in Mr. Daniel Mathew's classes. I will also be posting here regular updates on developments in ADR both in India and worldwide.

Despite my ongoing exams, I could not refrain from posting this introductory post on Lex Arbitri. The first post will appear on 21st May 2010, when the burden of exams is taken off our shoulders.
