What is it?

Arbitration is a legal technique for the resolution of disputes whereby two parties agree to be bound by the decision of an independent third party (the arbitrator). The role of an arbitrator is similar to that of a judge, though the procedures can be less formal and an arbitrator is usually an expert in his/her own right.
