Arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution. Arbitration is a binding procedure. A.R.C. is a private organization that oversees and administers the process. If the parties have agreed to arbitrate their dispute, then A.R.C. provides a list of available arbitrators and provides rules under which the arbitration will be conducted. Parties often select an arbitrator on the basis of their substantive legal expertise in a particular area of law. Next, the parties are provided with a date for their final hearing. At the final hearing, the arbitrator will hear the evidence and review the documents and then render a decision.
Unless the parties have agreed otherwise, the arbitrator's decision is final and binding, subject only to a very limited court review. Most arbitration is the result of a written contract entered into by the parties. By agreeing to arbitrate their dispute, the parties have agreed to waive their fundamental and constitutional rights to a trial by a jury.
