What Is The Difference Between Arbitration And Mediation?

Arbitration and mediation are alternatives to a trial before a judge or jury.

In arbitration, a neutral third person decides the controversy between the parties.

In mediation, a mediator assists the parties in negotiating a settlement of their dispute but has no authority to decide the dispute.
