TED talk- Did Your Lawyer Mention Multi-door Dispute Resolution System?

33 million cases are pending in the courts of India as of 2019. Justice is being delayed for decades in many instances. What is the solution to this problem? In this talk, Jonathan Rodrigues throws light on a dimension of the legal system which often remains hidden from a person seeking justice. This talk will change the way you look at the legal system and the choice of a lawyer to represent you. He found his true passion in the midst of confusing case laws, which led to his co-founding the Peacekeeping and Conflict Resolution Team (PACT). An ideator by heart, he believes that not all disputes need to be resolved in a courthouse. Jonathan is also the founder of Advocate Maximus and Lex Infinitum, Goa and Intercessions, Pune, India and is a cross-border dispute facilitator. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
