Mediation and Arbitration

Mediation and Arbitration

"Mediation and Arbitration are two types of Alternative Dispute Resolution (""ADR"") which is a terms that refers to any means of settling disputes outside of the courtroom. As burgeoning court queues, rising costs of litigation, and time delays continue to plague litigants, more states have begun experimenting with ADR programs. Some of these programs are voluntary; others are mandatory. While the two most common forms of ADR are arbitration and mediation, negotiation is almost always attempted first to resolve a dispute. It is the preeminent mode of dispute resolution.

Negotiation allows the parties to meet in order to settle a dispute. The main advantage of this form of dispute settlement is that it allows the parties themselves to control the process and the solution.
