adjudicative proceedings

Posted by & filed under Glossary.

A method of dispute resolution that decides the legal rights of specific persons in order to settle or determine a dispute. Unlike mediation, adjudicative proceedings (i.e., litigation, arbitration, or mediation-arbitration) relinquish control of the legal process to a third party neutral who then determines the rights and obligations of the parties involved.
