legal dispute resolution involving the use of an
arbitrator to hear the points of an issue from both

an agreement has previously been entered into by the
parties involved to accept binding arbitration in

disputes between countries, states, corporations or
other entities where strict application of legal
precedent is lacking or not applicable. This
