ODR and the Courts
Whilst acknowledging that ODR assumes two roles as a competing and complementing
system to state courts, our focus in the following pages shall be exclusively directed to the
complementary role of ODR, and to the development of court annexed ODR schemes.

incorporate ODR into the legal process, and then proceed to shed light on possible
future paths for state-run ODR systems.
