Speeches to note: ADR and the Commonwealth

Tue Feb 16 2010

Attorney-General Robert McClelland, in a speech at the Government Law Group Forum in Canberra, has spelled out a range of initiatives for promoting greater use of ADR in the federal justice system.

"As the biggest single litigator in the federal justice system, the Commonwealth and its agencies play an important leadership role in increasing the use of ADR in Australia", the attorney said.

In support of this goal, the attorney officially launched the AGS/LEADR training programme "ADR and the Commonwealth".
