Introduction

Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that, along with mediation and negotiation, occurs outside of the courtroom. Arbitration is often used to resolve contractual disputes, particularly in international commercial transactions, as well as in employment law. Because arbitration operates outside of traditional legal arenas, the law of arbitration cannot necessarily be found in the usual legal materials, making it more difficult to research.

In general, when researching a topic within a substantive area of the law, one should start with secondary sources to find the leading and most relevant primary law. Once you have some citations in hand, look them up in primary sources. Be sure to check out the current awareness resources so that you stay abreast of developments throughout your research. See the library's guide to the legal research process for a more general overview.
