What You Need to Know About The Arbitration Act
Arbitration Act of 1996 is an Act of parliament that deals with contracts and legal agreements
These contacts and agreements usually include an arbitration clause
The Act was passed to provide parties an easy and inexpensive method for resolving their disputes through arbitration
It prevents the hassle of going through the highly expensive litigation procedures
The Act sets out the objectives and guidelines according to which parties can enter into legally binding arbitration agreements
It also provides various pre-determined terms and conditions for arbitration agreements, how to select arbitrators, and methods of serving notices
The parties are however, free to make any amendments as per they desire while drafting the agreement
The Arbitration Process | Know everything About It
The process of resolving legal disputes in order to prevent litigation is called Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
Usually ADR is the first step in case of a legal dispute between two or more parties and the Civil Procedure Rules, which governs civil litigation procedures in England, also encourages parties to make use of ADR
Principally, ADR is a cheaper and quicker way to settle disputes as the court is not involved and there is no need to take out time exclusively for court hearings on a regular basis as these take months and even years to provide solutions
Instead of focusing on the collection and organisation of formal evidence, ADR concentrates more on a practical and costs effective solution for both sides
The outcome is usually a product of negotiation rather than legal arguments. However, technical legal skills play a vital role in getting a fair conclusion for the client.
There are two key methods through which ADR is performed. One is Arbitration and the other is Mediation.
Arbitration means appointing an independent, professionally qualified and skilled expert to evaluate the formal evidence provided by each of the parties and make the final decision that is in accordance with the law. Arbitration could be Contractual or Voluntary. The decision of the Arbitrator is normally legally binding as the decision will be enforced by the court but it is also possible to conduct non-binding arbitration if the matter is really complex.
This involves appointing a mediator to help the parties to a dispute to negotiate in order to reach an agreement. This process is very informal and usually is kept confidential and when it is successful, it results in the signing of a mediation agreement. However, if the mediation fails, the dispute is usually settled through litigation. It must be noted that if the matter reaches court, the information provided in the mediation process cannot be used as evidence and the mediator is not allowed to provide evidence at all.
