Arbitration is a form of dispute resolution that offers an alternative to court adjudication. The parties jointly select an independent arbitrator or arbitration panel and agree to be bound by the decision of that person or tribunal. Arbitration is used in many contexts around the world to resolve contractual disagreements as well as disputes over the application of international law. The Teaching Negotiation Resource Center (TNRC) offers arbitration teaching materials for use in law school curricula and in professional training programs.
