ADR Help and Resources

Welcome to the ADR Help and Resources section of FindLaw's Alternative Dispute Resolution center, which will help you learn about legal alternatives to traditional lawsuits. Arbitration is a less-formal process whereby disputes are handled outside of court, often by a retired judge (the arbitrator) and sometimes reinforced through court orders. Mediation is a more collaborative process in which a mediator facilitates the establishment of common ground among the parties in order to find solutions to the dispute. This section includes information about how to select and work with an arbitrator or mediator, plus resources to help you get started.
