In this article, the author examines whether the dispute resolution processes proposed in 2019
for civil courts in Scotland are suitable for the context of civil justice in Scotland in 2020 and
the future. They are measured according to the policy context, what is known about the purposes
of litigation, dispute system design and the needs and cultures of an adversarial civil justice system
currently grappling with the impact of coronavirus restrictions.
