"Both the legal profession and consumers will need to buy into the use of ADR as a method to resolve disputes rather than proceeding the whole way through the court system".

I am not sure what this means - ADR is clearly a method to resolve disputes and it is a method which works in many cases. Most people do not want to go anywhere near a court, so I doubt the majority would need much encouragement to try an early alternative to court proceedings. We have pre-action protocols which are effectively compulsory, so imposing a requirement on parties to engage in some form of ADR before bothering a court (save in exceptional cases) looks like a logical next step.
