“The obligation of our profession is, or long has been thought to be, to serve as healers of human conflict. To fulfill our traditional obligation means that we should provide mechanisms that can produce an acceptable result in the shortest possible time, with the least possible expense and with a minimum of stress on the participants. That is what justice is all about.”

- United States Supreme Court
Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, January 24, 1982
