Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution that takes place outside the court system. Arbitration typically involves a neutral third party (arbitrator) who listens to the evidence and arguments of each party and renders a decision on the matter. The fact that a decision is rendered by the arbitrator is a principal difference from mediation where the parties control the outcome. There are several different forms of arbitration depending on statute, contract or agreement of the parties.
