The ADR technique differs from the conventional legal system (Blake et al., 2016). The traditional litigation mainly conforms to a specific type of evidence that is considered reliable whereas ADR can resolute to use other types of evidence such as hearsay. The core premises of hearsay acts as a reflection of values used in supporting the conclusion that creates room for resolution. In arbitration, hearsay is quite important since its elements are controlled by rules established before carrying out the ADR. The latter supports hearsay since it promotes confidentiality in both parties. It is impossible to have the same protections in ADR, and the conventional legal systems since their policies are different therefore different procedures are used in solving cases.
