Arbitration, in the law, is an administrative alternative to the courts for whereby the parties (sides) to a dispute submit their respective positions (through agreement or hearing) to a neutral third party (the arbitrator(s)) for resolution. If either side appeals the result to a court, that court will not change the arbitrator's findings of fact but will decide only whether the arbitrator applied the law correctly to those facts.
