Studying civil justice systems, then, also provides an opportunity to study alternative dispute resolution. Apart from the general research focusing on civil justice, inquiry on alternative dispute resolution exists, but is limited theoretically. ADR research has focused on types of alternative dispute resolution, underlying justifications, and the ways these programs may be incorporated by state and federal courts. As such, descriptive and explanatory research on ADR has been interdisciplinary and has recently moved toward efforts at program evaluation.

How does an institutional change in civil courts like ADR affect civil justice outcome, system norms, and the behavior of system actors? These questions can be answered by offering a profile of civil justice and by exploring the role of one form of ADR, mediation.
