Chapter 2: The ADR Spectrum 31 (b) Mini-trial Another hybrid process is the mini-trial, described under paragraphs 6 and 7 above. This hybrid is used primarily in large corporate litigation. This is a hybrid of negotiation, mediation and case evaluation. Used primarily in businesses, the minitrial has, as its philosophical basis, the realisation that mutual benefit may be gained by each corporation or company in resolving disputes without protracted litigation. Continued business dealings will enhance each company’s profitability.

The decision of the private neutral party is treated as a judgment of the court. A fee is normally payable to the retired judge. While this has led to the legitimate criticism that this type of process is only available to the rich and wealthy, 16 it is acknowledged that considerable savings result from the use of this procedure, compared with the usual litigation process. Other advantages claimed for this process are that the parties have the opportunity to pick their own judge, who may have special expertise in the area of the dispute and who can devote their full time to the dispute.
