Arbitration
In This Chapter
• Arbitration explained
• How arbitration works
• The advantages and disadvantages of arbitration
• How to get your award enforced

It has been around for a long time, but it’s only recently that it’s become more widely used, especially in consumer-business transactions. Arbitration is often used in the sports world for the same reasons it’s spreading into ordinary people’s lives: it’s fairly quick, it’s relatively cheap, and most importantly, it can be kept confidential.
