CHIEF Justice Benjamin Odoki recently launched the Commercial Court Mediation Pilot Project (MPP), which he described as a crucial alternative to settle disputes.
He said the project would reduce the backlog in the Commercial Court and serve as a test-bed for measuring the usefulness of court initiated Alternative Dispute Resolution programmes.
“Under the Mediation Pilot Project, cases filed at the Commercial Court will be systematically reviewed for referral to mediation at no cost to the parties,” Odoki said at the High Court in Kampala.
He said the programme was in future expected to be replicated in other courts.
“I would therefore implore the litigating public and all the courts to give serious thought to implementing more aggressively this provision to speed up the disposal of cases,” Odoki said.
The project was developed by the Commercial Court, the SPEED project, the Bar Committee on Court Management and the Centre for Arbitration and Dispute Resolution.
