The Difference between Mediation and Arbitration

The difference between mediation and arbitration is significant. Mediation is a process in which a trained neutral person, a "mediator," helps people in a dispute to communicate with one another, to understand each other, and if possible, to reach agreements that satisfy everyone's needs. The mediator typically prepares a memorandum summarizing the agreement the parties have reached.

Arbitration is defined as the submission of a dispute to an unbiased third person, the "arbitrator," designated by the parties to a controversy, who agree in advance to accept the decision of the arbitrator as a final resolution of all disputes. After a hearing at which all parties have an opportunity to be heard, the arbitrator will author a written opinion setting forth conclusions of fact and law.

These days, mediation and arbitration are well-established and widely used means to end disputes, being among several kinds of alternative methods of dispute resolution that have become popular ways of resolving disagreements out of court, saving time and money.
