Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms like arbitration
and mediation can be initiated by the disputing parties, or they can
be mandated by legislation, the courts, or terms of a contract.
HOW IS ARBITRATION DIFFERENT
FROM TRADITIONAL LITIGATION?
Arbitration is like traditional civil litigation in that a neutral intermediary hears the disputants’ arguments and imposes a final and binding decision that is enforceable by the courts. It is unlike traditional litigation because the disputants in arbitration promise to settle future disputes by arbitration before a dispute materializes. Another difference is that the disputants select the arbitrator in an arbitration. In civil litigation, disputants don’t choose the judge.
WHY IS MEDIATION DIFFERENT
Mediation is a negotiation facilitated by a neutral third party. Unlike arbitration, which has some of the elements of a trial, mediation involves no decision-making by a neutral third party. For more information, see Why Mediation?
