  Arbitration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arbitration, in the context of United States law, is a form of alternative dispute resolution — specifically, a legal alternative to litigation whereby the parties to a dispute agree to submit their respective positions (through agreement or hearing) to a neutral third party (the arbitrator(s) or arbiter(s)) for resolution.
Since commercial arbitration is based upon either contract law or the law of treaties, the agreement between the parties to submit their dispute to arbitration is a legally binding contract.
Arbitrators are not bound by precedent and have great leeway in such matters as active participation in the proceedings, accepting evidence, questioning witnesses, and deciding appropriate remedies.

Arbitration processes are convened on an ad hoc basis, and the parties influence the composition of the arbitration panel and/or the selection of a specific arbitrator.

CAAPs differ from binding commercial arbitration: arbitration in CAAPs is usually mandatory but nonbinding, and parties have the option of a trial de novo (i.e., a new trial in court on the merits of the case).
Arbitrators in CAAPs, however, are often required to be members of the bar or specialists in their field.
Arbitrators in CAAPs are usually entitled to “reasonable compensation” for their services and to be reimbursed for costs such as copies, travel, telephone, postage, etc. (See, e.g., Nevada Arbitration Rules, R. 23, Costs.) The fee is usually split by the parties.

 The enforcement and validity of arbitration agreements   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
An arbitration clause requiring arbitration of the consumer's claim that the lender violated the truth in lending act was not unenforceable as unconscionable or in violation of public policy because it failed to specify who was to pay the costs of arbitration.
Where the arbitration clause requires the employee, but not the employer, to arbitrate and eliminates statutory rights while limiting the damages recoverable by the employee, it is unconscionable; the extent of the unconscionable provisions requires that the entire arbitration clause be held unenforceable, instead of severing the unconscionable parts while enforcing the obligation to arbitrate.
Arbitration Clauses have been held unenforceable as unconscionable or against public policy because the arbitration rules were one-sided and unfair to the consumer, because the cost of arbitrating was too high for the consumer or because the agreement was not clear about who would pay the arbitration expenses.

An institutional arbitration is one that is entrusted to one of the major arbitration institutions to handle, while an ad hoc one is conducted independently without such an organization and according to the rules specified by the parties and their attorneys.
For example, the International Court of Arbitration (ICA) (http://www.iccwbo.org/index_court.asp) decides on the number of arbitrators and their fees, appoints the arbitrators, ensures that the arbitration is being conducted according to International Chamber of Commerce Rules, determines the place of arbitration, sets time limits, and reviews arbitral awards.
