Arbitration Basics

Even though it sounds complicated, arbitration was originally intended in part to provide a more simple and cost effective way of resolving disputes outside of court. In reality, arbitration can be quite complicated and also costly. FindLaw's Arbitration Basics section contains in-depth articles and related resources detailing just what arbitration is, how it works, when you can use it, and how it compares to mediation and other types of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Also included is an article detailing some of the most important advantages and disadvantages of using arbitration to resolve an issue when compared to litigation.
