Arbitration and mediation law is the branch of law dealing with the alternative approach to trial when determining a case or issue. An arbitrator is a third party individual that both parties select to decide their case. Arbitration can be considered binding or not binding; if the arbitration is not binding and the parties involved disagree with the decision, they may then take the case to court to be reviewed or changed. A mediator does not make a decision for the parties but attempts to negotiate and advise each party regarding their legal rights. If the parties are able to make an agreement, the mediator then works to get the agreement approved by a judge in court, and is considered a binding order.
